I forgot to tell you we stayed at the Chateau Lake Louise, very nice, quite swanky. And enormous. I almost needed a packed lunch to get to mums family suite. She’s getting all the good rooms. Early breakfast (best buffet on the trip so far) and then off towards Banff.
We made a couple of stops on the way for sight seeing & then caught the Banff Gondola to the peak of Sulphur Mountain. Stunning views from the top of the mountain. Interesting experience getting the scooter up there. It only just fit into the gondola with one other person (that person would be me!)
Today was a free day in Banff, which we all sort of needed. Mum caught a bug yesterday so today spent most of the day with her feet up, in bed. We went for a walk around town and then came back to the hotel for an afternoon nap. There is a fantastic Australian run coffee shop in town – White Bark Cafe. Its not big but the coffee was worth the walk.
Tomorrow we join the Rocky Mountaineer for 2 days.
