About the Book
For me personally, T R A V E L is the catalyst for my non-scholastic "Theory of a Better Life". I truly believe that if you see the world... it is impossible not to be changed.
This world never seizes to surprise and amaze me, so when asked Why alberta CANADA? My response... Why not?
After driving an hour northwest of Calgary's International Airport, it was apparent WHY alberta CANADA was selected as our 3rd wedding anniversary travel destination. The grand scenic entrance to the Canadian Rockies lay before us, and we knew that our 8 days in Banff, Jasper, and Lake Louise were going to be both surprising and amazing.
Reflecting on our time spent in alberta CANADA from May 9 - 16, 2009 it is difficult to narrate our emotional experience; however, I truly hope that the photographs we captured throughout the region can translate our story and provide a glimpse of this breathtaking travel destination.
Whether it's the grandeur of the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, the awe inspiring magnitude of Lake Louise, the peaceful solitude of sunrise on Lake Beauvert in Jasper, or the chilling unequivocally impressive glacial experience of the Columbia Ice Fields, we hope you will enjoy this photography book and one day travel to alberta CANADA and see for yourself.
"The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page" ~St. Augustine For lack of better words... I am a traveler, attempting to be an amateur photographer, while pretending to be a journalist; BUT… I’m really just a husband, father, fun-loving, sarcastic, cycling fan, who thrives on learning as much as I can about the world, so I started a travel blog at http://austinglobetrekker.wordpress.com. Austin GlobeTrekker is all about sharing TRAVEL stories, photos, and experiences from my hometown (Austin, TX) and my travels around the globe. The goal is to collect stories and photos from friends and family and along the way... hopefully meet new friends and encourage others to travel and learn from one another. So Join the Conversation!
