Alpine Meadows of the Canadian Rockies

Alpine Meadows of the Canadian RockiesIn Summer , the land just below the high peaks are home to spectacular alpine meadows.  Yellow Avalanche or  Glacier Lilies burst into bloom  until mid July.

The mountain sides covered with these multicoloured flowers are really impressive.
