The contiguous national parks of Banff, Jasper,
Kootenay and Yoho, as well as the Mount Robson, Mount Assiniboine and
Hamber provincial parks, studded with mountain peaks, glaciers, lakes,
waterfalls, canyons and limestone caves, form a striking mountain
landscape. The Burgess Shale fossil site, well known for its fossil
remains of soft-bodied marine animals, is also found there.
