Where I Traveled: Alberta, Canada Part 3- Banff and Yoho National Parks
I can’t believe is June! We are half way through the year. Where did time go? I also cannot believe I haven’t finished sharing my Canada trip. Life has been crazy over here! But I assure you the wait is worth it because I will be sharing some amazing pictures I took at Banff and Yoho National Park. Banff NP is a stunning park connected to Jasper National Park and Yoho National Park. We also camped here. We stayed at “Two Jack Lakeside” campground for two nights.
Our first stop was at Peyto Lake Trail is a short (about 1.6 miles) hike that provides an overview of the Peyto Lake. The view is spectacular. It i so… blue! It reminded me of Crater Lake. On that trail there is a view point where you find a lot of people taking pictures however, if you keep going a little bit up on a trail the view gets better. You can see the whole Lake.
Then we went to Moraine Lake & Lake Louise. Which were also stunning and… you guessed it, blue! But a different shade of blue.
We went kayaking for an hour at Lake Louise , which if you visit, is an activity I highly recommend you to do. It’s so much fun and the water is just stunning.
And also, please do not leave Banff without eating a dessert at Beaver Tails (they have two!). You will thank me later.
Banff has been (hands down) one of the most beautiful National Parks I have visited so far. I loved it and would definitely like to visit again.
Our last stop before coming back to California was Yoho National Park. We actually were not able to explore this park as much as we wanted to due to time, however we enjoyed the hike we did and the views.
And this was the end of our trip. I had a wonderful time exploring, camping, kayaking and hiking. If you are like me and enjoy nature, these parks should be on your list. I hope you have enjoyed this “series” of my trip to Alberta, Canada. If you have visited let me know what do you think of it. If you are visiting soon, I am jealous.
