A glimpse of the Banff Springs Hotel (someday I’ll stay here, but a visit to the Rundle Lounge in the Hotel is the next best thing!)
And further down the road, a sliver of beautiful Lake Louise….
Since this is the first of my favourite places I’ve visited (having camped in Banff as a little kid), it’s probably at the top of the list followed by New Orleans, Maui, and Tofino/Ucluelet. Where to next, that’s what’s on my mind – somewhere new, perhaps.

If you could go anywhere right now, where would you go? I’m getting the itch to plan a trip. Not sure where yet, but I would love to go back to New Orleans someday.
It was a hot, dry, summer in Western Canada, and as a result there were a lot of forest fires. Prior to our camping trip to Banff in August, it had been so smoky that the highway between Banff, and Radium, British Columbia had been closed. We camped for four days and had spectacular weather for three of those days.

It was very smoky on on our last full day in Banff. Mount Rundle on a clear day…
And on a smoky day….
Made for an interesting sunset…
