Banff Springs

I didn’t do too much planning for the trip to Banff so there were only  two things on my must do list – go to Lake Louise and actually go into the Banff Springs Hotel and wander around instead of just admiring it from the outside.  I did take some pictures inside, but I wasn’t happy with what I took.  It is as beautiful inside as it is outside. Had lunch in the Rundle Lounge and the service was surprisingly warm (I thought it would be a bit stuffy and formal) and friendly, and came out with a new favourite wine, Cedar Creek Pinot Noir 2009 (winery is in the Okanagan, about twenty minutes from Kelowna).
