My trusty companion while exploring the Canadian Rockies. We've been best friends since we were 8 years old. Today's his birthday - go give him some love. πŸŒ²πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

The pilot decided we weren't nervous flyers and proceeded to skilfully navigate the helicopter as close as he could to the surrounding mountains. πŸ˜…πŸš

The sheer scale of the mountains and lakes that occupy Alberta is breathtaking. This is Lake Minnewanka. It's a glacial lake that stretches for 13 miles through the Canadian Rockies! Photo by Mr @scottcbakken πŸŒ²πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

Built as one of Canada's grand railway hotels in 1888, this castle like building is nestled into the Rocky Mountains of Banff. It's completely surreal. Reminded me of Wes Anderson's Grand Budapest Hotel. πŸŒ²πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

I wish I could pretend I was this calm and collected on the helicopter ride. The truth is I was bouncing around with excitement like a child on Christmas morning. Swipe to the left to see a successful photobomb by my fellow passenger. Photo by @maxc20 - check out his work. πŸŒ²πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

A very frosty Peyto Lake. πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦πŸŒ²

This truck is our kitchen, our bed and our car. We've fondly named her Big Bertha. She's our trusty companion as we travel through the Canadian Rockies. Photo by @maxc20 πŸŒ²πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

We stopped off at Johnson Canyon to find a hidden cave. The hike up to it takes you along a windy path that juts out over the river below. Photo by @scottcbakken (Check out @davey_gravy version too!) πŸŒ²πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

We've spent the last five days driving through two national parks here in Alberta. I'm in awe. Having spent the last three months in New York, it is quite a contrast to be surrounded by dense vegetation and snow. It is a good reminder to spend more time outdoors! More time exploring. πŸ€˜πŸ»πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦πŸŒ²

We stole @alexstrohl's kayak to take a paddle on Two Jack Lake. Heading north to Jasper today. πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

I sat in silence for the majority of the helicopter ride in complete awe.

A week before, the lake was frozen over. It's only just started to thaw out.
