Castle Mountain is located approximately half-way between Banff and Lake Louise. While looking nearly impenetrable from the Trans-Canada Highway, the peak can be ascended from the backside on the northeastern slopes. The mountain was named in 1858 by James Hector for its castle-like or fortress appearance. Following the post-war visit of U.S. president Dwight D. Eisenhower, the name was changed ...

    The drive is about three hours without stopping, but not stopping is impossible! I loved the drive from Banff to Jasper more than the opposite direction as the sights seemed to build in height and grandness as we moved up the Parkway. The first two stops right out of Banff are gorgeous,reflective lakes that make excellent photo ops but are ...

    If I were planning my wedding, I'd definitely consider the setting at Moraine Lake. Here, the lake is set like a turquoise jewel against a backdrop of soaring spires laced with glaciers and studded with fir and birch. There's a hiking trail and several spots to stop and take breathtaking photographs of a place nearly everyone has seen in pictures, ...

    If you go at the end of November, you can see the World Cup Skiing Championship. The mountain had great conditions but is definitely not for beginners. I went down the mountain 5 times and had to stop because it was too difficult.

    The Banff Park museum was the child of the old Natural History Branch of the Geological Survey of Canada back in 1895. The present 1903 museum building is the largest and most elaborate example of the early phase of park design utilizing decorative cross-log construction. The resulting roof/walls, large windows, nice natural light, truss system, and Douglas Fir construction make ...

    Hot springs are part of Banff culture. Powered by sulfur and the heat, visitors can partake in a semi-large pool. This one feels like a Vegas Hotel. It's kind of crowded and there is plenty of room to go around. Do not miss if you are here!

    The Cave and Basin National Historic Site of Canada (located at the far west end of Cave Avenue) commemorates the birthplace of Canada's National Park system, which began here in 1885. I love this kind of historical stuff, and hence manage to come here (and to the nearby Whyte Museum) most every time I come to Banff. You might want ...
