At the end of Day 1 we stayed at Valemount, BC. In the morning we continued our road trip and stopped at Mount Robson. I’ve been here a few times and fortunately every time the weather has been gorgeous.
We were at Mount Robson before noon so there weren’t as many people which allowed for a clear photo. I got bitten by a mosquito right on the neck here and it swelled for the rest of the trip. On top of that, when we watched the news at night they were warning Canadians of the West Nile virus spread by mosquitoes throughout the country.
We stopped at a few scenic places in the park including Athabasca Falls and Peyto Lake. In the park you really feel how small you are among the tall trees and staggering mountains. The drive between different falls and lakes were at least an hour long!
In the evening we went to downtown Banff which I was looking forward to because I wanted to visit BeaverTails. Finding a parking spot was a bit difficult, maybe that’s why this person was in such a rush and parked like this.
I tried the Apple Cinnamon BeaverTail in Quebec so this time I tried the Chocolate Hazelnut one. It was so delicious and crispy fresh out of the fryer. However, I think I prefer the apple one better.
