What could be more Canadian than celebrating Canada Day at one of Canada's many National Parks?\nI simply cannot think of a more Canadian thing... unless you added eating poutine on a canoe while listening to Shania Twain. Now that's a seriously Canadian image... you're welcome.\nI digress - it turns out that Parks Canada agrees with me, so they've made admission free at several Canadian National Parks and Historic Sites for this year's Canada Day.\nSo if you don't have plans for this July 1st, 2019, consider one of the beautiful sites listed below and save yourself the cost of admission cause Parks Canada evidently loves Canadians... and we love them, too.\nJasper National Park\nView this post on Instagram Along the Athabasca River, Jasper National Park, Alberta A post shared by Glenn Davis (@johnglenndavis) on Sep 4, 2018 at 7:00am PDT\nWhere: Yellowhead Highway, Jasper, Alberta\nLearn more.\nGros Morne National Park\nView this post on Instagram Explore the RARE geological features of the Tablelands.

The building in the photo is the Prince of Wales Hotel, which is one of the most iconic national park hotels in Canada. ⠀ I’ve been on the road the last week, quite literally. ⠀ I drove from Minneapolis to Cincinnati and back for a conference and along the way visited several national park service sites. I didn’t post much on Instagram because I was behind the wheel of a car most of the time. ⠀ I’ll be home again for a stretch before starting my travels again next month. It should be quite a busy summer for me, I should get close to visiting all 61 national parks in the US. I’m pretty close to my goal. ⠀ #everythingeverywhere #explorecanada #explorealberta #travelalberta A post shared by Gary Arndt (@everythingeverywhere) on Apr 9, 2019 at 7:38am PDT\nWhere: AB-5, Waterton Park, Alberta\nLearn more.\nBar U Ranch National Historic Site\nView this post on Instagram #baruranchnationalhistoricsite #baruranch #travelalberta #photographybybonnita A post shared by Alberta Photographer (@bonnitawurzphotography) on Jun 21, 2017 at 6:27am PDT\nWhere: Township Rd 17B and 17A, Longview, Alberta\nLearn more.\nFort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites\nView this post on Instagram Warning ⚠️ This is not a postcard.
