In 1,336km, I received the peace, consciousness and inner connection that I wanted. The Trans Canada Highway was my Camino de Santiago. I drove, I photographed and I felt the deep pleasure of breathing fresh air again. In Jasper National Park, I contemplated the fact that I was in the presence of rock structures that were over 300 million years old.

In listening to GyPSy Guide’s Canadian Rockies National Park and Icefields Parkway audio tour while driving, I learned about previous local homesteaders and native tribes, the significance of different look out points, and where to stop for great photos. I was immensely thankful for the modern ease of driving an SUV on well maintained highways instead of what people used to endure, riding a horse in deep snow over the terrain.

I relished the magic of this visually astonishing Earth. Its brilliance, vibrance and immaculate creation is still full of mystery.
