After a comfortable flight from Toronto early am at 9:00 we landed in Calgary international at about 1:30 pm local time. Baggage claim was a breeze and so was our car rental at Avis which was right across the airport. Well, yes there was some confusion as my cousin from California could not join us on vacation due to my Niece falling sick, we …

Woke up a bit late today and after a great breakfast it was time to wrap up, pack out and say c'ya to Irwin's Mountain Inn. We checked out around 11:00 am and headed straight to Lake Vermilion. This lazy lake, set of 3 lakes are spread aside of Trans Canada Highway and outside of Town of Banff but not too far out. The lakes were pretty calm and …

Today after a decent breakfast we headed out to Banff Lake Cruise at Lake Minnewanka. Water was beautiful green color. The lake can go from 30 feet to 500 feet and is really a man made lake as opposed to glacier lake. Cruise was great and so was our guide Kyle. Adjacent to this lake were two other lakes - two jack and Johnson. Two Jake lake was …

... a little challenging but the end result make us think we were on top of the world. It was a particularly enjoyable walk as the ground and trees were covered with the most snow seen this trip. We ended up looking over Bow River gorge and the Bow glacier that fed it.

Susan and Richard did another quick but harder descent and that really was a bit of a disappointment. Especially when they needed to climb back out of it! We ...

... his life while taking photos of a grizzly just last year. He'd been slowly backing away while taking photos, backing away is what you're supposed to do, but when he took the camera down, the bear was much closer than he'd realized, and it was too late. It's one warning sign you never want to ignore over here. We took some particularly beautiful shots of colourful upturned canoes, and decided not to walk all the way round to the far end where we could hear a waterfall. Jill ...

    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. I guess you take on foot as the shops are really close. Walking distance from Safeway for some grocery shopping. Inn offers fridge but no microwave.
