Greetings from Alberta!

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!

  1. Maybe you’ll have a chance to vis­it Cadomin. Vis­it the ‘Hole in the Wall Cafe’ from Chuck and Marge. Don’t know if it’s still there but I cher­ish great mem­o­ries about Cadomin and the sur­round­ings.
