      Canadian Rockies These are mountains the way a kid would draw them. Get ready to be super jealous of your future self, checking out those alpine . The British Columbia/Alberta border parks – Height of the Rockies Provincial Park, Elk Lakes Provincial Park, and Akamina-Kishinena Recreation Area – present some truly extraordinary landscapes to explore. The Rocky Mountain Trench (also known as the Columbia Valley) is surmounted by the Rocky Mountains on the east and the Bugaboos on the west.

      The Monkman area is in the Foothills of northeastern British Columbia (Figures 1 and 2), which McMechan () has described as a triangle zone with a low wedge taper. However, there are relatively few faults of any magnitude in the Jurassic-Cretaceous rocks at the surface (Barss and Montandon, ; Kilby and Wrightson, ) (Figures 2 and 14) and there are numerous folds. As the largest of Canada's mountain parks, Jasper offers unlimited outdoor activities (day or night). Dip your toes in the biggest glacially-fed lake in the Rockies or watch star systems across the world's second largest Dark-Sky Preserve. You'll want to pack as much exploration as possible into your stay here.

The Rockies are distinct from the pacific coast ranges and the cascade range and sierra Nevada. I read that the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains are near Denver,Colorado.

Alberta's southwestern boundary is traced on the Continental Divide, along the high ranges of the Rocky Mountains, and many peaks are located on the Alberta–British Columbia border.

The peak of Mount Columbia, within Jasper National Park, is the highest point in Alberta, second highest in the Canadian Rockies and 28th highest in Canada.

Recent work in the Rocky Mountain Foothills and Front Ranges of southwestern Alberta and southeastern British Columbia has demonstrated that the economically important coal-bearing strata between the Jurassic Fernie Formation and the Lower Cretaceous Blairmore Group can be subdivided into three formations, which in ascending order are Morrissey Cited by: 8.

Jasper is the largest and most northerly of the four Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks which comprise the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Some time ago, while working on a problem that involved the question of the presence or absence of islands near the close of the Cretaceous period in the region now occupied by the southern part of the Rocky Mountains, I was forced to the conclusion that no land masses or islands of any considerable size persisted there throughout the Cretaceous period, for I found no.
