        Canmore is a town located about an hour from Lake Louise, and was so much warmer! All the snow had already melted and it felt like going from winter to spring instantly.

        We stayed at the Alpine Centre which was also a hi-hostel. It was a really far walk to the main part of town as it was located up on a mountain. It was really nice being …

I also forgot my tablet (both the electronic and paper versions) and forgot might be a loose word for “didn’t even think about it”.

        ... seating up top and dining below. As far as I'm concerned the latter is the only way to go. Comfortable seats, loads of leg room, clear window space to the side and above, room to move about etc. The front of house staff (4 per carriage) rotate between dining car service and upper carriage.
