Our cabin (#19) is small but nice. The bathroom is clean with a good shower. The cabin is next to the Johnston Canyon Falls, which has a steep falls that is pretty impressive.

This is it, our final day. We had best make it count, we said. What's left? hot springs - no dont fancy wet stuff to pack as flying home today. Gondola ride? Maybe, let's take a look. Nice idea but loads of money when the clouds are too low for any views.

Donkey made a new friend, Rocky and we got to know our travelling companions better. It was a long day, we arrived in Banff around 9:30pm and then boarded a coach to transfer to Lake Louise which took another hour. But boy it was worth the wait!

Along the way we stopped for a photo of what is known as 'Castle Rock'. It's name is very apt - it looked exactly like a castle, jutting out above the pine forest below. We arrived at Lake Louise and it looked like all the other tourists in the area had chosen that time ...
... s house and after a 'gas' and caffeine stop we pulled up to the
park entry gates where there was a big line up of cars waiting to get in! As we were driving towards the park we drew closer and closer to the Rocky Mountains, soaring so high above us, with tiny specks of snow on the highest peaks. It was really beautiful.
We pulled into Banff with its brightly coloured flowers in pots on corners, wood planked buildings and moose and bears on signs ...
... up right by the Chateau de Lake Louise, and went to get a first glimpse of the lake.
This was quite possibly one of the most beautiful settings I'd ever witnessed, and I can't imagine there will be many more places as nice. The only downside is the amount of people, but that can't be helped due to it's stunning green-blue water and fairy tale appearance. After a few photos and eating lunch, we headed up the path towards the Tea House at Lake Agnes. ...
