The Ramparts Tonquin Valley, Jasper, Canada

It is great to back home for a bit. I have been on the road now for almost 70 days with a day here and there to head back out somewhere else. I am looking forward to taking some time to rest. This is an image from my Canadian Rockies trip. This area can be found in the Tonquin Valley in Jasper Alberta. This is one of the most stunning areas I have ever witnessed. It is roughly 25 km from the nearest road to get here but worth every step/. This set of peaks is known as the "Ramparts". It is rated one of the top ten hiking areas in a recent adventure guide. I ended up there a few weeks after Art Wolfe and his film crew where there. Thanks to my buddy Jason Edlund for showing me around here and helping me with some of the load.

Thanks as always for any feedback.
