With all that sun we were finally able to continue our camping adventure. We stayed 2 nights in Lake Louise on a beautiful little campsite. They even had a electric fence to keep us safe from the bears. Lake Louise is a small little township nestled between the big mountains. We did a hike to the lake which was truly gorgeous and met a nice couple from Arizona
We enjoyed our stay in Lake Louise and continued our journey to Banff which is the oldest NP in Canada. It is a very spectacular site featuring mountainous terrain, glaciers, dense forest and alpine landscapes. Banff itself is a busteling town with many shops and cafes. It's a nice place to hang out and meet people. We hired bicycles and did a 50 km loop. Again, lots of photo opportunities and great picnic spots. It would be great to come back in winter and check out the snowboarding and skiing. We stayed two nights in Banff and could have stayed longer.
We are currently in beautiful Nelson and looking forward to catching up with Mike, Steph and little Ruby :-)
