Did a full tourist day with a stroll down the main strip of Banff, with a special stop at the candy store ( a lot of serious excitement in the store trying to decide on the candy to buy!) then up Sulphur Mountain on the gondola which was also received with excitement. Amazing views and fun to people watch all the other tourists- there was even a wedding party up there getting their photos taken - it was a busy place. But the buzz in town and and up on the mountain was fun. Seeing so many people coming from all over the world to see the Rockies helped the boys to appreciate this all a bit more(or at least has made them pause and wonder).
Then we ended the day with a stroll along the Bow River that runs through Banff ( the trail was right next to where we are staying!)
Tomorrow we are doing a family friendly hike along Johnston Canyon and then north to Lake Louise.
Can't believe we have been on the road for 28 days!
