Have to be more on the ball, almost missed the entire sign.
Even though the weather isn’t too favourable we are having a blast. We drive through Banff on the way to the Banff Upper Hot Springs
We know the Springs are closed but thought we’d get a peek. No such luck!
Head back to Banff, and a yummy breakfast at The Maple Leaf
We asked our waitress, (who is originally from Orillia, ON) what are must sees, off the beaten track, as we didn’t want to spend time in the cute boutiques and stores even though most were wearing masks.
Best to use caution!
Drop off is worse than it looks! If you make it through that section you get to walk at the side of the highway
Head back. Good bye Banff
Off to Lake Louise …
Oh those clouds!!
No shortage of vehicles at Lake Louise
Magnificent Lake Louise!
Go for a hike time. We decide on the Fairview Lookout
Description which we didn’t read until we returned. Lesson learned! “leaving from the boathouse on Lake Louise, this short, uphill hike offers you a unique look at both the lake and the historic Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.” Oh my goodness, it just about killed me! I had to stop several times. Allan resting with me
At least we unknowingly made the right decision on how to return! Steep descent, sturdy shoes or hiking boots.
Back in Canmore. We predict the next time we are in the area, this camp ground, within walking distance of downtown, will be condos. Much construction in progress.
