This trip replaced our original California trip plans which were cancelled due to COVID19. To cure our isolation madness we grabbed our masks & hand sanitizers and decided to take a road trip within our own province.

    Night shots by Vermilion Lakes

    September 10, 2020 in Canada ⋅ 🌙 13 °C

    The night was quite clear and the moon was down early, so we decided to try out a bit of night photography. Always tricky to figure out what settings you are using on your camera when it is nearly black out.Read more

    Cows

    September 10, 2020 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    We zipped back into town for some ice cream at COWS. Not only do they have great ice cream, but their merchandise is hilarious. I didn't get photos of their stuff because of social distancing... we had to get out of the way quickly.... but go look at their merch on their website.

    Also added a couple misc Banff photos from walking down Banff ave.

    Cave and Basin NHS

    September 10, 2020 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    The Cave is still closed due to COVID19, but we still took a wander through the "Basin", which is where people used to be able to swimming. The water there is now protected because of an endangered snail species that resides there. I kind of forgot to take photos for most of it but here are a few I grabbed at the end. Sorry they aren't particularly interesting. The butterfly is cool though, right?Read more

    We got elk burgers from Eddie's Burger Bar and ate them by Bow Falls. With views like this, it's hard to miss eating in restaurants.
