I love Banff!! I used to go there a few times per year when I lived in Calgary – it’s amazing! :)


Diana May 3, 2010 at 2:24 pm

Wow, that place is amazing!


Kristen May 3, 2010 at 2:26 pm

Those make me homesick…I’m from Calgary and since moving to Ontario, the only thing I miss more than the mountains is my family.

so beautiful!!! Great to see pics of Canada!!!


Jenna May 3, 2010 at 2:26 pm

Banff is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. I encourage everybody to take a visit! :)


Leigh May 3, 2010 at 2:28 pm

I live in Calgary and the best part of living in Calgary is being able to hop on the highway and drive for an hour and be in Banff. It’s gorgeous!

We also went away for a weekend this winter to Emerald Lake and it was even gorgeous in the dead of winter!


Julie @ Peanut Butter Fingers May 3, 2010 at 2:28 pm

how gorgeous! loved this.


Lisa May 3, 2010 at 2:29 pm

Banff is one of my favorite childhood memories. My family went on a road trip through Alberta and Banff. BEAUTIFUL!


Jessica @ How Sweet May 3, 2010 at 2:32 pm

I want to jump in that water right now!


Kelly May 3, 2010 at 2:33 pm

Oh I love these pictures! I went to Banff on my honeymoon…a three week long roadtrip to Canada (as one of my Canadian bridesmaids was getting married in Canada three weeks after my wedding and I was to be a bridesmaid in hers). Worked out great! We LOVED Banff! Absolutely breathtaking! Hope to return someday, indeed! Thanks for bringing back some incredible memories!
Love the shots you took of the water, especially. So crystal clear! You are an excellent photographer!


Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter May 3, 2010 at 2:33 pm

What a beautiful place, nice pictures Angela!!


Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman May 3, 2010 at 2:56 pm

That place is gorgeous! Where I live it’s so crowded and busy. I feel like I just took a nice mental break. If only it looked like that outside my door. I think I’d be way less stressed!


Susan May 3, 2010 at 2:59 pm

I’m going there in 5 weeks!!!!!!! I’ve never been out west and I can’t WAIT to see (and hike in) the mountains.

Don’t hate me, but the bottom pics just got me excited to eat hamburgers there :P

So pretty! But that photo of the cross was pretty sad.


Hedda May 3, 2010 at 3:38 pm

Beautiful pictures.
No human constructed building can be compared to the beauty of “pure nature”.
I just have to say this : cows in the middle of the road remind me so much of driving in rural areas of Norway, haha!
I loved that when I was younger. My father got really stressed, but I thought it was the funniest part of the car-ride :)


Camille May 3, 2010 at 3:53 pm

Absolutely stunning


Kim @ Eat and Be May 3, 2010 at 4:00 pm

Ahh, Banff! I love your pics. I live in Calgary but am spending 3 months in Malta with my in-laws so they reminded me of home :) So beautiful.


Christina May 3, 2010 at 4:30 pm

Gorgeous. And cute cows!


Meredith May 3, 2010 at 4:41 pm

I was skiing there yesterday! We dodged roadside goats and elk but no cows:)


Amy May 3, 2010 at 4:42 pm

Going there for the first time in September! :D


Ashlee May 3, 2010 at 5:03 pm

You live in Banff???
Any suggestions of great places to live out West? Particularly in BC? Great oudoors place…but not too isolated…but not too much traffic crap…and good for a “young” person…?!


Stephanie May 4, 2010 at 6:51 am

Lovely pictures and breathtaking views.
The last three pictures reminded me of a hike I took with a very close friend who I love tremendously and miss very much (this one is for you Elad !!).
