My last snow trip to Canada! Although chilly -1 celsius,  the snow on the trees and ground was melting. We stayed at the Fairmont Banff in Banff National Park, about an hour outside the Fairmont Lake Louise of my previous trip. This fairytale hotel is a castle built into the mountain which makes a gorgeous backdrop for hundreds of weddings that occur here every year.  Would love a hotel like this in California.

I promised you pictures from my Banff trip to Peyto Lake.  Banff National Park is considered part of the Canadian Rockies.  This was ultimately one of the most naturally, beautiful views I have ever seen. Only a short hike to the top but didn’t want to leave.  The background looks unreal and makes the ideal Christmas card.  Hope your enjoyment of the pictures comes close to my love of this destination.  You know I love it when this is my second trip in 5 months, and am anticipating another! It’s a taste of the beauty I anticipate in heaven!

After a trip to Banff last March, I knew I would return. While I adore the snow, I prefer to see the crystal blue waters that Lake Louise is known for.  Having a 3 day holiday weekend, I booked a quick trip. The photos below are from the first evening at the Fairmont Chateau, Lake Louise. More photos to come from this trip 🙂

WOW!  This was such a remarkable vacation!  I would recommend this trip to EVERYONE.  I decided to take my mom on a little mid-week getaway to Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada.  I kept our itinerary simple and based everything around dog sledding.  This was a dream come true for me.  Being a proud owner of two huskies, I’ve felt a calling to create my own dog sledding team.  Ok!  Ok!  Not really, but I have always wanted to experience it.  Our guide was Kingmik Dog Sled Tours, very informative and such an enjoyable ride through the gorgeous national park.  The Fairmont Lake Louise was a picture perfect hotel.  Pictures of this hotel will entice you to visit during any season.  Banff National Park has abundant hiking and site seeing which will keep everyone entertained. Such a successful mother-daughter trip.  I hope to return soon.  Enjoy the pictures!!
