Banff Town Site Fun Place to Be

The wilderness is out there sheltering this pretty little town. If you are lucky - you might meet the locals - aren't they cute - but more likely you will meet fellow tourists.
Banff has everything a tourist needs including great restaurants & fun shops & expensive shops - stop a while but don't spend all your time in town........go see the wildlife

Short Summer in the Rockies

Back in the wilderness - I was enthralled by all the natural beauty of Banff National Park from the scenic drives - the enchanting hikes to great lakes & mountains carved beautifully by ancient glaciers.
No wonder it is Canada's second tourist destination - but for me No.1
Go wild in the wilderness.

    10,000 visitors a day! Don't they get in each other's way, step on each other's feet? Or is there room enough for all of them. Your photos look marvelous, in any case.

    wonderful park, awfully I hate driving and I guess that is the best way to tour around, will have to wait till I find a driver to do such a tour.

    In 88 a friend took me from Calgary to Lake Louise for a half day trip. I wish I could have seen more of this beautiful part of the world.

    We enjoy the mountains and nature too, especially around Banff. Hope you got to see the elk grazing on the golf course early in the morning.

    You know... Photos like these are nothing compared to being there but still give you a sense of calm when looking at them. You have captured the beauty.

    Banff National Park is my favorite kind of place. The lakes look fantastic and I just hope to make it there one day. Thanks for this wonderful tour, Joan.

    To see Banff is my dream now. Amazing lakes, mountains, wildlife etc. I would choose a ski lift, too :-)

    Totally charming landscapes! And didn't you bring back a piece of the golden mountain? You would have been rich ;-) Thanks for stopping by my Galapagos pages, indeed it is a unique place! Cheers!
