A jovial family bitten by travel bug,
we enjoy exploring new places mainly using points and miles.
From India, residing in Sunny San Diego for past 7 years.
We have visited 12 countries spread over 5 continents.
Within US we have visited 16 states and 24 national parks.
Our little girl enjoys travelling too and is surely one of the most
travelled kid with over 100 individual flights in a span of 5 years
Banff National Park
Sulphur Mountain Summit
We started with a visit to the Sulphur mountain summit using Banff Gondola. The vistas from top are great and you get a hint of what is to come!
The town of Banff is small but charming, Good restaurants and Coffee shops all around.
Next day we visited Lake Louise. A sapphire-whitish colored lake fed by glaciers. The color is due to the rock particles brought down by the glaciers grinding the mountain side.
Since we were in the area for 2 more days we visited this beautiful lake at different times to see somewhat changing colors.
Lake Louise Ski Resort>
Lake Moraine is close by too. This one has super bluish color(different from Lake Louise). A small hike leads to a stunning view point where you can see the blue lake surrounded my multiple craggy peaks.
This is a poster card /surreal sight and is widely used as the face of Canadian Rockies in web. It is hard not to be awed by this jaw dropping sight.
