Northwest Road Trip: Banff

In this segment of the trip we actually got out of the car, so there are a few more pictures of the nature. First was Johnston Canyon Trail in Banff National Park, then Marble Canyon trail in Kootenay National Park. Like Lake Louise last week, both of these places so completely different in the summer vs. the winter.

Following such exhaustion was some delicious pizza and flight of local beers! Banff is a pretty great place!

We were pumped to do the full trail to the upper falls, then got about 100 feet in and promptly changed our minds. It's very cold.
