A couple of weekends ago was Civic Weekend here in Canada. Now, I don't know much about the meaning behind it, but I do know it gets me a day off work, which means a day for exploring. Since coming back from New Zealand it has been a bit hard to settle back in to the swing of things so a weekend on the road was just what we needed. Banff National Park is known for the Canadian Rocky Mountains and it's crystal blue lakes. If you have seen a photo of a lake in Canada, chances are it's in Banff National Park. On a map Banff does not look that far from Vancouver, however since Canada is the second largest country in the world, getting anywhere is a bloody long way! The total drive time is between 9-10 hours.
