|Beautiful views the whole way along the canyon|
|Baby Girl loves hiking!|
The lower falls are a 1.1km hike and the upper falls are at 2.6kms. The trail was quite busy given we are in the Rockies and on Canada Day long weekend but it was very enjoyable. Along the way we saw some folks with their camera on the ready staring down the canyon. Turns out three crazy guys on their kayaks were coming down. That was quite a site to see. Just happy it didn't give Justin any ideas - adrenaline junky!

We then started making on our way back. At the lower falls there is a rock you can go through and stand very close to the falls. We went through and baby girl enjoyed it. The mist is cool and it felt nice after our hike.
Before leaving, we kitted ourselves out with some new shoes! Without even knowing at first, we ended up getting a matching pair of Keens. They are completely different colours so it's not too corny! We both absolutely love our new shoes!
We drove back to Banff and went back downtown to do a little bit of shopping. We both really like Banff. Lake Placid, close to home, always seems to us like it could be so much more. Banff is exactly what you would expect of an alpine village. There are some upscale shops yet there are still some affordable ones and everything is well up kept.
After supper, Justin took the bike and the camera and went out to find the hoodoos that we weren't able to find on our bike ride yesterday. He got some great pics.

Tomorrow we have a really big day! Lots to see and lots of driving!
