The Canadian Rockies
July 3, 2010
The MODIS on the Aqua satellite captured this image of the Canadian Rockies on June 12, 2010. The black lines show country borders. To the south you can see (from left to right): Washinton State, Idaho, and Montana in the US. To the north are the Candian provinces of (l to r): British Columbia and Alberta. The Rocky Mountains are a range that runs from Western Canada into the American West. There are a number of national parks in the Canadian Rockies - two of Banff and Jasper, are in Alberta, right on the border with British Columbia. Jasper National Park is to the north and Banff to the south.
