Great chalet about 15 minutes out of Lake Louise but worth the drive. Spacious cabin with gas fireplace and Jacuzzi in the main room! Pleasant balcony with forest / mountain views. Café / restaurant was great - especially the mussels! No TV and poor reception so very relaxing .... even had time for a jigsaw and cards! Staff were very friendly and attention to detail amazing .... only downside was no ironing board and plenty of mozzies!

So we decided to go to Johnston Canyon, a place we went by twice on the Bow Valley Parkway the day before and found it so crowded you could not ...
... Ryanair debacle where everyone jumps up, elbows their way into their overhead storage and then squeezes themselves into the aisle so they can get off a nanosecond earlier and join the 100m dash to customs. This was all very civilised. Welcome to Canada!
We called the campervan company who told us to get a taxi to their depot, which they would pay for. We did so and, with a little hunting, found the right place. However, our van wasn’t ready yet, to our ...
... big bull....got pretty close at one point!
We had quite a few bird feeders across the CEI site and this attracted a lot of birds, one day I managed to catch a picture of a Red Cardinal which is really rare in these parts of Canada, no one had ever seen one up there before so great to get a picture. We also get a lot of Blue Jays which are an amazing blue and quite a bit more common but still very beautiful and I really like them.
