Hello! Well, we made it over the border and back again and I have to say, I have a huge crush on Canada. I’ve always known it to be a gorgeous country with delightful people, but to experience it first hand was a treat, and it was kinda hard to come back to the States (i.e. post-vacation Reality) after such a relaxing, peaceful time. Without further ado, here’s a glimpse of our trip, in pictures…
Nelson, British Columbia
The orange bridge in Nelson, BC.
Mike’s Place Pub. Where else would we eat our first night out?
North to Revelstoke!
Revelstoke, British Columbia
The Revelstoke bears welcome visitors to downtown.
The Coast Hillcrest perched on the hills above Revelstoke.
The only bear we saw on our trip was the one on this sign.
Apart from birds, the ONLY wildlife we saw on our whole trip was this guy in the hotel lobby!
View from hotel, overlooking the valley and the dairy farm that was originally on the site.
One of many behemoths along the highway between Revelstoke and Banff.
Banff & Canmore, Alberta
The iconic Fairmont hotel in Banff. Nope, we didn’t stay there.
Coast Canmore Hotel. Yep, we stayed here.
The view from our hotel room of the Three Sisters, “Big, Middle, and Little.”
A gorgeous walk in beautiful Canmore.
Bow Falls, Banff
Glacier on the road home. Near Lake Louise.
The last pic before the camera went back into its bag and the long drive home began in earnest.
