So the May clan does this trip every 3 years. This tradition began since before I was born when my parents went with there friends to Tofino and as friends started getting married and having kids the brood to Tofino grew to a very significant size. As the kids got older and started working the brood began to dwindle but my sister and I tagged along for one last trip.
Every time we usually gun it to Calgary, stay a night, then gun it to Vancouver his time we have decided to meander. Plus, we are going white water rafting tomorrow. So today we managed a hefty 2 hour drive in about 8 hours. We stopped in Banff and went to the Banff Springs Hotelwhere my old friend Marilyn Monroe stayed while filming “River of No Return”. I also found this sweet lamp made out of a fire extinguisher.
We took in a farmers market where my mom bought some glass blown dishes, my sister and I bought matching bracelets (cute I know) and my dad bought a tie die shirt.
After Banff we drove down the highway a little further to Lake Louise and after driving around the parking lot for quite some time we were able to take in the beauty that is Lake Louise. There were many canoe’s out on the lake and it was very overcast so the pictures are alright. I dipped my feet in and my foot cramped within 30 seconds. We walked around the grounds of Chateau Lake Louise and I took some lovely flower pictures. Tonight we are resting our heads in Golden, BC and tomorrow its off to white water raft and 3 Valley Gap.
