Do you know the story of Abbot Pass? Some call it the Gem of The Rockies.
The Abbot Pass hut is an alpine hut located at an altitude of 2925 metres (9,598 feet) in Abbot Pass in the Canadian Rocky Mountains in Alberta, Canada. It is nestled between Mount Victoria and Mount Lefroy, straddling the continental divide, which, in this region, defines the boundary between Banff National Park in Alberta and Yoho National Park in British Columbia. While close to the border, the hut lies entirely in Banff National Park, and is the second-highest permanently habitable structure in Canada (after the Neil Colgan Hut). The hut is maintained by the Alpine Club of Canada
Cory Ripley recently shared his #ExploreAlberta moments with us. Judging by his photos, he thoroughly enjoyed his time in our province!
Hope to see you again soon, Cory!
