Banff National Park

Last weekend E and I explored Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. I urge you to visit, and to be smart and mindful of your time in this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site (leave no trace).

I am still processing both what we experienced and the photos from our brief time in this gorgeous region. We only had a few short days to spend there and hope to return. If you would like to help celebrate Canada 150, the free 2017 Discovery Pass provides unlimited opportunities to enjoy national parks, national marine conservation areas, and national historic sites across Canada!

After spending some time in Banff and visiting Lake Louise, we explored a few kilometers of the Icefields Parkway:

  1. Wow! Absolutely beautiful. My childhood association with Canada was Ontario Province. My parents and my brother and I would drive from Ohio to Peterborough where we would fish and stay at a rustic lodge. We loved that week of solitude. And porcupines. LOL Happy 150 Canada. Here’s to another 150 more.

  2. I think I was 16 the summer we visited western Canada, including Banff. The strongest memory this much later is how LATE the sun sets in the summer. It’s all gorgeous.
