Hello, we’re Audrey and Jack. Welcome to BanffandBeyond.com
We consider ourselves privileged to be able to work and live in one of the most beautiful places in the world, Banff National Park. We have created this site to share our photography and personal experiences of the park and the rest of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
We have never taken for granted that we live in one of the world’s top travel destinations. We can literally step out of our front door and experience what people pay thousands of dollars to come from around the world to see.
Year round our spare time is spent exploring our beautiful surroundings. This website will cover all the usual tourist attractions, but present them with a locals perspective. Believe it or not, even in the bustling summer months if you step just slightly off the beaten path you can find places of solitude. Our other focus is to show that the Rocky Mountains have so much more to offer beyond Banff, hence our title. There are many treasures that often get overlooked.
As locals we have our favorite places to eat, and can find a modestly priced meal. We know the best times to visit areas and what places offer the best chance of wildlife spotting. If you are planning a trip to the Rockies or just love experiencing them through photography check back often as we continue to showcase the magnificent area we live in.
We are private individuals blogging about our personal experiences in the Rocky Mountains, we don’t have any affiliation with tourism companies, nor do we sell anything.
We don’t mind helping out people who have an inquiry about the area, but we can get quite a few people contacting us so please take a look through our website first. You’ll find answers to many of your questions. We provided information for the majority of the popular sights to see in Banff National Park and other areas of the Rocky Mountains. If you have any further inquiries we don’t mind answering a question or two.
