Due to the pandemic, tourism in 2020 in the Canadian Rockies is shaping up very differently than usual. I am assuming that visitors will not be allowed to enter Canada for much of this year, meaning that the millions of tourists from the U.S., Europe, Asia, and the Pacific countries that usually descend on the region will not be here. But I’m also assuming that the overall number of visitors to the Canadian Rockies will not be that low as Canadians, unable to travel overseas, will spend their summer holidays closer to home. And as so many people are out of work, they will have free time to spend in the mountains.

Avalon has gone ahead and published the two Canadian Rockies books I updated last summer, Moon Canadian Rockies (10th edition) and Moon Banff National Park (3rd edition), both with a new cover format. As I have done for many years, I also contributed Canadian content (Victoria, Southern Gulf Islands) to the new edition of Moon San Juan Islands for Don Pitcher.
