Explore The Amazing Rocky Mountains At These National Parks

The Rocky Mountains, often known as the Rockies, span 3,000 miles from western Canada to the US states of Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Arizona.

The Canadian Rocky Mountains are home to Athabasca Glacier, the most-visited glacier in North America. However, for the past 125 years, the Athabasca Glacier has been receding or melting.

Because the Rocky Mountains stretch for 3,000 miles, six states, and two nations, it's no surprise that there are a lot of fantastic national parks in the Rocky Mountains.

The contiguous national parks of Banff, Jasper, Kootenay, and Yoho offer some of the most beautiful scenery and outdoor adventure opportunities in all of Canada.
