I’d like to start out by saying, my thoughts are with all those who have been affected by the wildfires in British Columbia, which have now also caused closures in Alberta, including part of Banff.

I was lucky to visit Banff again this year before the closures. (Visit my posts from 2015: Banff, Lake Louise) It is always welcoming, beautiful and relaxing. For tourism, it is ideal. The village is like a painting and the shopping is AMAZING.

Lake Louise, located within the national park is also unreal – busier than ever for Canada’s 150. If I had more time, I would have rented a kayak — the water was filled with lovers of the season.

I hope to go again soon, and travel the sunshine coast — looking for these views again.
