Since moving to the Rockies of western Canada in 1984, Lynn Martel has spent countless hours and days exploring the mountain wilderness with her many experienced friends as well as some of the best known and well-informed professional guides in the outdoor adventure business. Waking up in tents and backcountry huts; hiking and skiing up valleys, over passes and across glaciers; rock climbing; mountain biking; caving; paddling and horseback riding have all become integral parts of Martel's life in the Mountain West. Since the mid-1990s, Martel has shared the beauty and the magic of the region's inspiring wilderness destinations through finely crafted tales of her own adventures and also those of the Rockies' most colourful and iconic adventure personalities. Her vast amount of experience and insight into the most popular activities available to tourists, locals and the most skilled and competent weekend warriors infuse this collection of 20 of her best adventure stories. Complete with colour photographs and maps, difficulty ratings, seasonal details and general information, these stories will inspire those seeking to experience adventures at their own level in and around Kananaskis Country, Canmore, Lake Louise and Banff, Yoho and Jasper national parks.
