I’ve visited Banff township in Banff National park in the rocky mountains a few times now. It’s only an hour and a bit away from Calgary. It’s similar to Queenstown but without the lake. There’s lots of hiking (tramping) and site seeing to be down there.
The above photo is of Tunnel Mountain. It’s not much of a mountain, more like a steep hill. I walked to the top while there.
Cascade mountain (above) is out the other side of Banff township.
Oh yeah, they have Bears in Banff! Even the rubbishi bins (see above) have to be made bear proof!
Elk in the area are allowed to wander free around the town. They’re huge beasts which look quite scary but are apparently quite harmless.
