Johnston Canyon & Banff Town: Travels
The other weekend, we ventured to our beautiful Rocky Mountains. I'm much more of a city slicker but when you get me out to nature, I always enjoy it.
We started with a hike to the Lower and Upper Falls in Johnston Canyon. Glad we headed out earlier for the trek because there were so many people near the end of the loop for us.
One thing I really appreciate is how small you feel among the mountains and forest. Makes your everyday stresses and problems seem so insignificant at those moments.
After the hike, I parted ways with my posse. They headed to the hot springs while I hit the town of Banff.
I bought a couple of inukshuks carved from precious stones for my kiddos and stopped in on the many chocolate and candy stores. Can't go through Banff without eating a bearpaw (caramel and nut cluster coated with chocolate!)
One thing is for sure, you can not leave Banff without a greater sense of Canadiana.
