Banff (Day 28)

I haven’t written any words except captions lately, so I figured this might be a good time. I rolled into Canada through the port of Roosville this past Friday, and made it up to Invermere, British Columbia to spend the weekend with friends. It was a fantastic weekend because it was so relaxing, and just nice to feel “at home”. They took me up to the peak of Swansea Mountain on their 4Wheel Drive Truck, out on the lake for swimming, for a boatride, barbecue, golf (thanks Reid for treating!). And on monday I did laundry, went gliding, and hung out for the day.

Thanks soooo much to Cassy and Forrest for giving me the opportunity to “recharge”. I really needed it and had a lovely time 🙂 Hopefully will see you again soon!

After I left, I headed up 93 through Kootenay National Park, over to Banff. Banff was quite touristy. More like new york city. There were people from ALL over Asia and Europe, it was kinda ridiculous.

After touring around some, I got some pizza from Aardvarks pizza and Subs just off Banff Ave. Then camped out at The “Two Jack Main” campground for the night.

Last night I slept in the “columbia icefields” campground and camped next to a group of people from switzerland. I introduced myself when I came out of my warm car, and they were sawing off a tree limb in my site. A guy climbed a tree with a saw, and got a limb. “need wood, fire”. Thought that was pretty cool. Last night I heard stuff around the car, but eventually just put earplugs in and got some good sleep.

Well, in Jasper now, don’t know if I’ll stay here tonight or not… Then will be making my way down through Kamloops to Whistler, then West Vancover where I’m taking a Ferry to Vancover Island, then Ferry from Victoria to Port Angeles, then Olympic National Park, then Seattle! As you can see, lots of places, so keeping the timeline pretty open, just wanna make it to seattle by next friday!

Enjoy the pics from Banff!

Oh, and i’ll leave you with a “hi” from my begging friend. This was taken with a wide angle lens, so he was about 6in from the lens.
