We brought Joy to Banff! Ok, your immediate thought: We must have done something godly that made people of Banff happy! Unfortunately, it is not about what. To find that out, you may scroll all the way to the bottom of this blog.
Joy in Banff, literally! We took Joy to Banff for a daytrip and get awed by beautiful scapes. Our first stop was Tunnel Mountain and The Hoodoos, then off to Vermillion Lake where we had our lunch. After lunch, we headed off to Johnston Canyon for coffee and more intense scenery. The place was packed and busy as parking spilled over to the side roads. No surprise there! We then proceeded for an hour and a half hike to Lower Falls.
As we were heading out of Bow Valley, we were caught up on a mini traffic jam as passersby pulled over to watch this beautiful black bear grazing right off the road. Bear was so oblivious of everybody snapping photos and even from honking horns of some irrate drivers.
Back in Banff town center, we headedf straight for the Bow Falls and then off to the Gondola rides.
By 5PM, there were still lots of day light to spare but we had to cut our visit short as Joy had to be back in Calgary for a commitment. Ah well, next time again!
