Rainbow over Athabasca Falls Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

I was backpacking in Alberta, Canada alone and stumbled upon this scene while getting ready to hike a new trail. A sustainable travel project is immersion in the natural world. It is respecting the land and learning from one's surroundings. It is practicing Leave No Trace ethics and taking opportunities to educate others I meet along the way about Leave No Trace.
