What is your favourite colour? If red is your ultimate hue, then we have an adventure for you. Chances are you've heard of the famous Grand Canyon near Las Vegas, but did you know we have our own mini-version in Canada? Alberta's Red Rock Canyon is the most colourful hike you've ever seen.\nIt is a must-visit spot in Waterton Lakes National Park just a three-hour drive from Calgary, close to the Montana border.\nWhile the area might not be as large as the natural wonder near Las Vegas, it is still stunning. Here you'll find iron-rich stones with a brilliant colour ranging from garnet to brick.\nIf that wasn't dazzling enough, the rock alternates between red and white stripes, just like our national flag.\nEven if the idea of going for a hike leaves you feeling exhausted, then fear not. You can defeat this easy trek. The flat loop trail is a mere 0.6 kilometres long and starts right next to the parking lot.\nFrom start to finish, it will take less time than your average podcast episode, roughly 20 minutes.\nBut once you begin, you'll want to stay much longer as there is so much to see. Around you, there will be mountain peaks and blooming wildflowers next to your feet.\n\n View this post on Instagram 📍Waterton NP, CANADA Miss you 🇨🇦 A post shared by ✈ S A R A H (@sarahtannoux) on Oct 20, 2016 at 1:37am PDT\n\nThe path will take you along the edge of the canyon and over a bridge. While on the bridge, make sure to stop for an incredible photo opportunity of the deepest area.\nThrough the center, you'll also spot a creek with mini cascading falls. The bright blue against the ruby rocks is a striking contrast.\n\n View this post on Instagram “Life is like an echo.

The smooth wet stones can be very slippery.\n\n View this post on Instagram Give me some red rocks, a canyon, a little river and I'll make it my #playground for the day!
