Jul 11, 2019 - Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada

Allan took off in the morning for a walk around Moraine Lake. When he returned We moved the rig over to the other side of our space! after lunch we drove over to Yoho national Park which is adjacent to Banff and Lake Louise. We drove over to and took the walk up to Takakkaw Falls. The falls are comparable to upper and lower Yosemite Falls. The Road off the main road which leads to the Falls entrance is a narrow two lane road with very sharp switchbacks. As we were driving up the hill we saw two buses coming down the hill and I have no idea...

Jul 10, 2019 - Lake Louise

Wednesday was a short move day. Because I was only able to reserve three days at the Trailer Court, I had booked two days at the Lake Louise Trailer Campground. We didn’t leave Banff until 11:00. The stretch of the Trans Canada Highway between Banff and Lake Louise is interesting because it is fenced on both sides with periodic wildlife crossings built over the highway. Even with a couple of stops for views along the way, we arrived at our campsite in Lake Louise by 12:30. It was a large campsite but has only 30-amp service with no water or...

Jul 10, 2019 - Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada

We had to move sites this morning, as indicated with our original reservation, which is a pain in the patoot! Everyone is up so early and on the go except us! But we were able to move sites and then Allan left to take his walk around Lake Louise. He did a lot of hiking so opted not to walk up to the teahouse. I was supposed to get to sleep in but that did not happen. Last night the weather said sunny today, but by this morning it said rain at noon and beyond. ⛈ as it turned out it rained all day and evening with brief pauses in between. He...

Jul 9, 2019 - Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada

Beautiful clear bright morning! So much for the weather report..... 𯘂. Today we drove and drove and drove. I am definitely not into hiking anymore and long walks are questionable. I could actually plan to barbecue for dinner. No sign of rain. I cannot use my computer so I cannot send out club group emails, only emails from my phone. The crowds here are huge just like in Yellowstone. Parking at all interesting stops is a challenge. Our first destination was to drive over and down through Kootenay national Park. Vermilion River runs...

Jul 8, 2019 - Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada

Today marks four weeks that we are away! Time sure goes fast when you’re not paying any attention to dates, times or days of the week! All is well, we are sufficiently relaxed. It was a short 2 Hour Gorgeous drive to Lake Louise. Big big big mountains! First a stop at the dump, and freshwater fill. Since we have been in Canada we have only had 30amp power. It’s easily doable as long as we pay attention to what Utilities we are running at the same time. The last four days we had power and water. Here at Lake Louise we have only 30amp...

Jun 2, 2019 - Lake Louise AB

Day 16 - 19, June 2 - 5 Arrived at Lake Louise AB this morning after a short 40 mile run from Banff. We arrived early as the campground does not accept reservations until mid June so it is first come, first serve for the sites. They had many open sites even though the first section was down for renovation. The campground is nestled in a valley next to the Bow River with mountains on both sides. There are a number of grizzly and black bears that frequent the area near the campground so the park service has a special area for tent sites...

2019 Alaska RV Trip

May 17, 2019 - Majestic

Every day, on this holiday, has something new and wonderful and today was no exception. After the usual packing of bags, shower, dressing and breakfast, we were on the road by 8 am. First stop - Maligne Canyon where our guide, Michelle, took us for a short walk around part of the canyon. The sound and sight of the cascading water was amazing. We saw fossils of small creatures from millions of years ago, a crow’s nest made deep down in the canyon wall and thousands and thousands of pine trees - many of which have been affected by the pine...

Snow, snow and more snow! It’s been so lovely walking through the mountains surrounded by snow. We were warned that there was a cougar in the area but we stuck together without a sighting. Have been in the hot pool in Banff . Our travels to jasper however have been stopped by the closure of the main hwy due to the massive snowfalls. Luckily we got 2 nights accom in lake Louise at the mountaineer lodge.We went to the famous lake , all frozen over. Oh by the way our car is now stuck in snow. Mmm

Sep 10, 2018 - The 5 hour drive to Lake Louise that became unexpectedly longer

The day started well with the higher temperatures you get in Kamloops and leaving punctually for the 5hr trip to Lake Louise. The scenery was interesting as Kamloops has quite a lot of wind and the impact is seen in the squarish shapes of the mountains and often pillars of rock standing out vertically. As we travelled, the mountains resembled more the coastal range. We stopped at The Last Spike ike where there are a few objects left from building the first railroad which passes in front of the small craft shop. We caught sight of one of the...

Aug 22, 2018 - Lake Louise, Banff National Park

Arrived at Banff National Park in Alberta Canada yesterday. Staying in the Lake Louise area for a couple of days at Lake Louise NP campground which is pretty nice. The scenery is absolutely fabulous here. The lake water is almost turquoise and the mountain peaks are majestic. Did a great 18 mile mountain bike ride from the town of Lake Louise to the lake on the old tram line road which was very cool (despite the uphill terrain and mile high altitude) as it was right along the river. Since we are in grizzly bear country, we had bear spray on...

Jul 19, 2018 - Lake Louise

Early(ish) start as cases required by 8 outside our room this morning, and journey starts at 9am. On the road on time we stop first to view Castle Mountain for a few minutes. This really was the last we see of mounts or mountains as the emphasis for the remainder of the day was on water features. The next stop is at Morraine Lake, a stunning azure blue lake. To get the best view we needed to climb a series of steps. This climbing lark is getting more & more difficult due to the high altitude we are at. Forgot to say when we were on the...

Canada - The Rockies

Sep 22, 2017 - Snow in Banff N.P.

Die ersten 2 Wochen sind rum in Kanada. 3.5 weitere können wir kaum erwarten. Mit unserem Riesencamper, den wir bei Minustemp. Auf Minimalwohnfläxhe reduzieren, geht es von Wildniscampground zu Wildniscampground. Den Kindern sind Wasserfälle, Seen und wilde Tiere noch nicht langeeilig; vielleixht auch wegen der 24/7 Betreuung. Naxh ein paar wenig frequentierten Orten im Wells Grey und Mount Robson Park in British Columbia kommen wir nun im Herzen der Rockies im frankophonen Alberta zu den Tourispots, wo man eher asiatische Sprachen hört.
