The Earth Continues to Amaze Me

My trip to the western region of Canada was more than just a trek to revitalize a part of me that was long thought to have been gone... but to experience the vastness of our country and the sheer awe inspiring landscape of our earth. Never have I felt more miniscule, than when standing at the foothills of Calgary while facing the Canadian Rockies. Toronto is a busy city with much buzzing about and there's always something to do or somewhere to go but there's people around and not a very diverse landscape. Even when driving to Waterloo or north of the city, the landscape is this calm and comfortable farmland and mixed forest. It's almost safe and... tame.

But, when you're staring at the Canadian Rockies, you're instantly reminded about how little you are and how insignificant the space you take up, is. These mountains are enormous, solid, impending and immovable; we're reminded about nature and the actual sheer blind strength that it has over us puny humans. Just amazing and humbling.

Keep in mind, these photos are in Banff and no longer at the foothills of the mountains.
