Canadian Rockies Time-lapse

The Canadian Rockies are a long range of mountains in western Canada that stretch from upper to lower British Columbia and spread into Alberta clear the southern border of Canada. This past summer we ventured to this scenic area in looking for some new areas to explore. We visited several parks, but only a fraction of what is worth seeing. The areas that we primarily visited are Banff National Park, Kootenay National Park, Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, and Yoho National Park.

Being our first time to the area we were very much in awe at the difference in scenery compared to the Rockies in the states. The area definitely has a untamed and untouched feel to it which is a nice change. We explored many areas, several of our favorites we’ve wrote about previously including, Rawson Lake, Burstall Pass, and Parker Ridge. Each of these offered great scenery for our time-lapse hobby.

While we were visiting the area there were some wildfires that did hamper some of our efforts. The overall haze from these fires did take away some of the clarity of the mountains. This also hurt our opportunity to do night time-lapses and possibly see some of the aurora borealis. Hopefully someday we’ll get to capture both when we return.

After editing all the time-lapse footage we captured on this long trip we finally have something to show. Below is the short time-lapse featuring some of our favorite places. Enjoy!
