Climbing to the Top in Canmore, Alberta, Canada
Big sister Calgary got all the attention during the 1988 Winter Olympics, but the Nordic Ski Events put Canmore, Alberta on the map. There is no lack of opportunities for skiing, hiking, biking, rock climbing, and fishing in this scenic community along the Bow River in the Rocky Mountains. Local photographer John Price shares his passion for photography and rock climbing by providing a birds-eye view of his beautiful surroundings.
