Our first visit to a great Canadian National Park – Banff.
Park views are simply spectacular – unlike any I have seen. Easy to get to on Canadian highways.
The very popular Lake Louise is a great stop. Look at that bright green water, caused by the glacier run off and minerals from the rocks. Just like the Caribbean, just a little chillier.
A hike to one of the local teahouses – a nice hike, but would suggest you BYOP – bring your own picnic. Two teahouses are within hiking distance – an interesting not-to-be-missed experience. Also this was a difficult hike for me, but thanks to Donald’s patience,I made it. The hike took two hours up, 45 minutes back.
The tea is good – you can carry in better food. A nice break from hiking with great views.
And once you reach the teahouse, you are rewarded with this spectacular vista – Lake Agnes.
We camped at Tunnel Mountain trailer park. Nice, Full Hookups and close to the lovely town of Banff – easy to navigate with a large RV towing a car. The Ranger at check-in was nice enough to move us into a larger site as the first just did not work for us. Thanks!
The park was fairly crowded and it appeared that the even-numbered campsites were more level (for those who care about being level) than the odd-numbered sites.
Once in the campground, you are surrounded with great mountain views all around…
And a bonus of being close to the lovely town of Banff with good restaurants & bars. We really enjoyed this beautiful town and the surrounding scenery.
We hope to return sometime in the future. And, as a bonus the Canadians in the this part of the country are super nice and glad to see tourists in their town.
