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

Roots Fall 2012 | Exploring Alberta
The most recent campaign takes place in the Canadian Badlands. Even the name fuels your imagination and appetite for adventure. The Canadian Badlands, in southeastern Alberta has yielded some of the world’s richest deposits of prehistoric fossils and dinosaur finds. You can almost feel the ground rumbling with the footsteps of the mighty beasts that roamed Dinosaur Provincial Park millions of years ago. Today this place is world famous for its dinosaur fossil finds. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the park contains one of the richest bonebeds in the world.
