We arrived at our hotel last night – the Fairmont Banff Springs. This luxury hotel was originally built in the 19th century in Scottish Baronial style. Very impressive and ideally located just outside Banff.
Today was spent exploring Banff and the surrounding area. This included a trip to Bow Falls, not far from the hotel. Afterwards it was a trip up Sulphur Mountain on the gondola. The views from the top were outstanding. On the way back to Banff we stopped at Two Jacks Lake – you guessed, named after two men called Jack!
Wildlife seen today include elk (seen on the edge of Banff), a chipmunk, ground squirrel and a bald eagle! I managed to take a photo of the eagle, not brilliant but nevertheless I got him (or her!).
No food pictures today. I thought I’d give you a break from them but don’t worry there’ll be plenty more to come.
