Rooms are cozy enough and clean but are certainly small. But we had fun staying. Bathrooms are really tight for those concerned and parking spaces are a bit less so you may struggle to find one.

Chris and Tahlia decided to spend some time in Canmore before catching the greyhound back to Vancouver, and then from there we planned to go to Vancouver island, Las Vegas and then down to the Cayman islands. Such exciting times ahead! :)
Lake Louise was a great experience. We had so much fun, met so many awesome people and made some really good friends.
... Meadows we visited yesterday) which made a good spot for some pictures.
After a few other photo stops we reached Moraine Lake at Lake Louise, but not after we had to queue for 15 minutes to get up the road as they waited for people to come down and free up parking. Whenever we Googled images of Banff and the area one picture kept coming up which we both loved - this was Moraine Lake. At first glance as we approached the lake it seemed a disappointment. It was nowhere near ...
