Though I’m still slowly writing through my amazing experiences in Nicaragua, Mexico, and Quebec, I just had to post some photos from this last weekend’s amazing trip to Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada.
I was completely blown away, thus the need to post a few photos now instead of waiting for it’s turn to be featured on TravelShus.
The mountains brought me back to southern New Zealand. The town made me miss San Carlos de Bariloche in Argentinian Patagonia. Still, Banff is distinctly Canadian. It was a gorgeous place to be for this year’s Travel Classics West and for a short road trip (with hiking, a picnic, and gondola rides!).

Canoes at Lake Moraine. Look at the hue of that water. Amazing.
