We haven't seen any "animals" yet but are definitely getting used to the ground squirrels and they are definitely used to people!
We decided to skip south to Banff instead of stopping at Lake Louise, and also decided to get a place in town so we can tour around on foot. I promised the kids a trip to the candy store. We are staying a Y hostel.. and it's really great! Very reasonable price considering we are right in Banff proper and it has a communal kitchen, laundry facilities (so good to get that done.. the laundry was really stinking up the van!) and we are all freshly showered, clean clothes and ready to hit the town tomorrow.
Hope everyone is doing well. Thanks for all the emails about the blog and pics.. I really appreciate it.
