A few weeks ago I went on a 10 day trip to Calgary and Banff, Alberta, Canada with Emily and three other couples. It was great! Banff National Park is amazing.
Things that stand out in my mind:
- Hike from Lake Louise to Lake Agnes and the Lake Agnes Teahouse, then up to Big Beehive
- Moraine Lake
- The Rocky Mountains!
- White water rafting on the Kicking Horse River (through a brief class 4 section)
- Banff Upper Hot Springs
- Lots of fun animal-related events at the Calgary Stampede: team cattle penning (pretty exciting, actually), saddle and bareback bronc riding, bull riding (totally insane), and competitive sheep shearing.
My favorite pictures from the trip are below, or click here for the full gallery.
