... laying winter snow adorn the granite mountains making them a site to see. Our first scenic lookout point was right across Fairmont Hotel, what a stunning fort like hotel, of course it's expensive but this hotel is right above the Bow River. After some picture taking we parked the car and did some strolling down Banff Ave Town is pretty warm and very inviting. We did some window shopping and settled in a local trattoria for some delicious Italian food. It ...
... that. We were told by the driver people have fallen off and also tried kayaking over it, but there has been no survivors.
A next stop was at Emerald Lake where there was an averlance a few years ago. At the time the lake had frozen over and on the opposite side of the lake was tourist cabins.
