this is one of my favorite places in the whole world. my husband and i walked to the other side of the bridge and then went for along walk.so peaceful, the air smells so great. if you ever get a chance to get to canmore which is just outside the banff national park it is a wonderful place. their main street has the most unique shops and the people are fabulous. oh so very friendly. lots of skiers in the winter, one year when we were there they were overrun with rabbits. they were literally everywhere. so we have had many excursions up here. it is definately gods country. spring and fall you have to be careful of bears as they come down from the mountains. the river is so crystal clear. there are many artists up in this area as well. first outing this summer will be here if at all possible.
