Beautiful BanffThe mountains continue to amaze me. This is the road towards Banff from Jasper. A fabulous drive.
We enjoyed two great dinners, one in the Youth Hostel, a really fantastic place to stay to experience Banff on a budget and a Canadian themed up market restaurant in town, the Maple Leaf Grille.
Banff too, has it's chateau like hotel, the Fairmont Banff Springs. Rooms from $337.00. Cheaper in the campsite!
These castle like hotels were owned by the railways, in this case, Canadian Pacific.
We took the Banff gondola to the top of Sulphur mountain and then climbed to the old weather station via wooden steps to get this magnificent view of the valley.
Continuing my quest to see wildlife (from a distance), we took the Bow Valley parkway, a forested road.
