Fortunately we have been here before. Last year we spent a long weekend, for our anniversary, at the Canmore Worldmark, and on one of the days we drove up to Banff to play tourist. We walked along the Bow River all the way down to the Falls, then headed back uphill to the Banff Springs Hotel and finished with a walk around town, and a late lunch in a pub. Therefore, no need to re-visit any of those places.
The 2 places that were of interest are Mt Norquay and Lake Louise, so that’s the plan. Saturday morning was clear, so we elected to do Mt Norquay that day and Lake Louise on Sunday.
We have 2 full days in Banff and are staying at a Parks Canada Campground, of which we had three to choose from. We opted for Tunnel Mountain Trailer Court, which surprisingly for Parks Canada even offers services, although only 30 Amps. Judi with extensive camping experience calls it sequestered in nature, but Andy, the ultimate city slicker reckons it is primitive. Tell us what you think!

Today was a drive through the mountainous terrain of the Canadian Rockies, with some spectacular vistas, pity about the rain, which degraded the scenery
