Banff National Park, Alberta

Banff National Park, Alberta We arrived in Banff National Park after our less than two hour drive from Calgary.  Upon getting set up at our amazing campground, we decided to take a walk to get our bearings.  After a short while, we realized there was shuttle service from our campground into town, and decided to jump aboard.  We had fun shopping around town and checking out the local scene before heading back to camp that evening. Our first full day in Banff dawned bright and early, as we spotted a herd of about 30 cow elk grazing outside the RV when we woke up that morning. After breakfast and elk-watching, we made our way via shuttle into town to travel from there to Johnston Canyon.  It was a 30 minute shuttle ride out there, and we enjoyed the gorgeous views along the way, and even saw a grizzly bear on the journey. At Johnston Canyon, we hiked to both the Lower and Upper Falls.  It rained a bit in a few spots along the way
