August: Canada Trip Photos

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…

Apart from birds, the ONLY wildlife we saw on our whole trip was this guy  in the hotel lobby!

    Amazing pics! Glad you had great weather for the trip. Too bad you didn’t see any moose along the highway around Banff. Oh well, you get to see deer closer to home.

      The signs we saw kept promising big horn sheep but we saw not a one! I’ll have to satisfy myself with regular sheep in the field up the road!
