My Article About
This Alaska Trip

Today we made it to Banff, only about 50 miles from Lake Louise. We're no longer on the Icefields Parkway, but Trans-Can provided a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains. It was a great travel day, but although sunny, a definite haze is still in the air from all the forest fires raging around this area and in Montana.

Banff is a really cute little town with its 2 star attractions in my book being the two mountains that we are parked between while here. Cascade Mountain holds court at the forefront of their main street and dominates the view from that part of town.
Mount Rundle provides an ever-fascinating show of color changes as it shows off its many levels of growth and acquired power. Isn't he gorgeous? I was parked directly across the street from him during our stay at Tunnel Mt. Campground.
This big guy is on the other side of our campsite. I never did find out his name.
This is Banff Springs Hotel - quite a place, eh?
You can really see how smokey it was that day from the forest fires.
