Banff Adventure Day 6: Bow Valley Parkway & Lake Moraine

Our Banff Adventure_Day 6 Bow Valley Parkway & Lake Moraine

Day 6 of our Banff Adventure was a lot slower paced as we made our way down the Bow Valley Parkway and did the drive up to Lake Louise.

Silverton Falls

I feel like Silverton Falls are a bit of an undiscovered treasure in Banff National Park.  Just up the Bow Valley Parkway from the busy Johnston Canyon, I would argue that the actual waterfall is just as impressive and the hike was much more pleasant without the large crowds of people to contend with.

Banff Adventure Day 4: Johnston Canyon Lower & Upper Falls

Our Banff Adventure_Day 4 Johnston Canyon Lower & Upper Falls

This was not my favourite day of our trip to Banff National Park.  The morning started off rainy and cold so we waited for a break in weather in the afternoon to walk over from the campsite to Johnston Falls.  Unfortunately, I think a lot of other people had the same idea that day.

Our Banff Adventure_Day 1 Yoho National Park

On our first day exploring the Banff area, we decided to leave Alberta and head west into the British Columbia side of the Rocky Mountains.  We ventured out for the day from our campsite at Johnston Canyon, and spent a great day hiking and discovering Yoho National Park.
