Dreamy Landscapes

Today we start the month with a dreamscape, those which are reflected in postcards, which serve as an exceptional location for movies, where documentaries are recreated and where the traveler feels that the time stops and you have to taste the show offered before your eyes. We go to the Valley of the Ten Peaks in the province of Alberta, Canada.

The “Valley of the Ten Peaks” is located in the Banff National Park valley, and seeing the images quickly understand why his name. Along with the ten peaks, most of which exceed 3,000 meters high, serving Moraine Lake mirror the landscape, creating a unique setting.

As a curiosity, we say that the Valley of the Ten Peaks appeared on the back of the banknotes of the 1970 and 1978 twenty Canadian dollars. But maybe you sound more because it appears as an option background of some operating systems. This landscape has become an icon of the province of Alberta.
