Today we are off to Banff via The Bow Valley Parkway. 60 miles from Lake Louise Campground (Trailer) to downtown Banff, Via Canada 1A. A beautiful road
with lots to see along the way. We are running parallel to the Bow River and Canada 1, but with the thick forests we are driving through we never see “1” and only
see the Bow River occasionally.
We stopped at Baker Creek Mountain Resort & Cafe, Bow Valley Parkway. Very cute resort.
From inside the Cafe.
We decided to hike Castle Mountain Lookout. Not a long trail, but very steep. I ended up walking back down the hill with a group we met along the way (that also turned around)
while Raymond continued. I found Calypso or Fairy slipper orchid growing in forest. Actually missed seeing them on the way up the mountain.
Had no idea Canada had internment camps!
Another Bear! Almost daily when we are out we see a bear or more!
This guy decided to lay down and eat.
