Banff is the first national park in Canada. I know Banff from the premier of Beyond the Arctic. Canada is not a mountainous country, but Rocky mountains are spectacular enough. The park is about an hour and half driving distance from Calgary. In the big country, people have different feelings of distance. One hour driving is far for Taiwanese, but not for Canadian. It seems they drive to the park quite often. The Banff Mountain Film Festival also shows their love of mountain. Although not a lot of people live around the mountain, mountain is still a good represent image of this country. And I believe that Canadians agree that.
