It's Day 5 of the trip and it's been tiring but fun. Right now we're staying in Canmore (half an hour south of the town of Banff), which is our home base while we're exploring Banff. So far, I'm not too impressed with what I've seen of Banff National Park. It seems to be pretty lame and tame compared to Jasper where we spent the last 3 nights. Lake Louise was pretty disappointing. The only place in Banff National Park that I've been impressed with so far was Peyto Lake/Bow Summit. The walk to the lookout almost killed me (I really don't like steep trails) but it was well worth it.
I have a lot of stories but I think I'll save them for when I'm back home and have pictures to show. For now, I'll just tell you that I've mastered the art of distracting tourists away from the best picture-taking spots. All you have to do is point your camera the other way and they'll follow suit and vacate the spot you're after. That's when you take over the spot and start shooting happily. You should try it the next time you go to a busy tourist attraction. It really works! :)
Well, gotta go. Later, skater!
