Hillsdale Meadows on Bow Valley Parkway:
Our day trek starts with a short stop in the picturesque Hillsdale Meadows.
This valley boasts a scenic grandeur in Fall and offers a slower driving route with incomparable views. It's definitely a
stop-and-smell-the-roses route, as most say. This area had a prescribed burn (Flames of Life) in 1993.

Johnston Canyon
Elevation Gain: 5,400 ft
Hightlights: 7 waterfalls, trail inside a deep canyon
Upper Falls: 2.7 Km (one way)
Lower Falls: 1.1 Km (one way)

The self-guided interpretive trail to the Upper Falls takes about 3 hours of hike (back and forth). This trail
has to be the busiest in the Canadian Rockies.
The first major falls, the Lower Falls, about 20 meters high, is about 1.1Km (roughly 1/2hour walk). Continuing on from the Lower Falls, the trail climbs slowly out of the canyon, passing by 5 smaller waterfalls. At 2.7Km, the trail reaches the Upper Falls (30 meters high).

Vermillion Lakes:
Our visit to Banff National Park is not complete without a visit to this inspirational series of lakes. It rained when we got here but the view was amazingly awesome even after the rain. Stayed a little longer after the sun set.

Final Take:
We wrapped up our day trek with Korean dishes in Canmore.

 Location(s): Johnston Canyon - Banff National Park, Alberta Canada
