Canadian Rockies Mountain Park - CANADA - UNESCO #304
This postcard was a direct swap with Andrea from Canada and describes the place that she considers the most beautiful spot in the UNESCO site Canadian Rockies - thanks a lot! With this one, 31 done, 931 to go. This postcard took 8 days to arrive!
The contiguous national parks of Banff, Jasper, Kootenay and Yoho, as well as the Mount Robson, Mount Assiniboine and Hamber provincial parks, studded with mountain peaks, glaciers, lakes, waterfalls, canyons and limestone caves, form a striking mountain landscape. The Burgess Shale fossil site, well known for its fossil remains of soft-bodied marine animals, is also found there.
