“As Canadian as it Gets”

I spent two weeks in Calgary last month and got to see a lot more of the city than I had the last time I visited. It was a nice change from the Boston tundra, and actually warm enough to do a good bit of walking. I snapped some of these while strolling along the Bow River pathway. Some puffy clouds and sun made for a beautiful day. We also made the trip to Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies. The park is massive (2,564 square miles), is the oldest in Canada and is absolutely stunning. We drove to Lake Louise where there were people walking, cross-country skiing and ice skating across the frozen lake. There was even a horse-drawn carriage taking people around the lake and a pond hockey tournament going on. It was a lot of fun to watch, especially against such a gorgeous backdrop. We ended the day at the town of Banff, a very quaint little mountain village. Definitely a place I’d like to go back to in the summer time.
