On Monday, we arrived in Banff around lunchtime. BANFF! I’ve been wanting to see Banff since I first realized in middle school that Legends of the Fall was filmed in the area and not in Montana. It was a cloudy and rainy day, but it was still gorgeous. Our first stop was at Lake Minnewanka. We ate some lunch while we enjoyed the spectacular view as the rain rolled in.

We also stopped at Two Jack Lake.

We drove around a bit, but worked our way toward our campsite at Lake Louise to get set up before the next round of rain rolled in.

And we saw another bear about 20 feet from the car! He just popped up out of nowhere!

After setting up camp, we drove to Johnston Canyon around 5:30 pm. The ranger said that the best time to see things was after 5 or before 8am, and since daylight lasted until 10:30 pm, we took a late hike. It was GORGEOUS and completely uncrowded. Even though it rained the entire hike, we hardly noticed because the canyon and the river were so beautiful.
