ALBERTA is undoubtedly the jewel in Canada's crown.
It has the drama of the Rockies and the attraction of national parks which spill over into British Columbia.
One in particular is worth visiting. The Banff National Park is between Banff and Lake Louise and has endless canyons and a changing landscape which really do capture the imagination.
To save time and energy during a visit to the Banff National Park, visitors can take a cable car to reach places for the chance to hike at a higher level without having to start at the crack of dawn.
