Weekend mountain getaway

For the long week end we decided that it was time for a road trip to get out of the city. Was starting to think this was a bad idea with all the rain in the forecast, but it turned out to be a great week end, only raining overnight and a little cool. We stayed in a cabin a Johnston Canyon. We head out Saturday late morning, getting to Canmore in time for lunch, were I visited the Sugar Pine. (I have not taken photo of my purchases yet but will share when I do). And just checked out the street for a bit in the after before heading on to JC.

On Sunday we walked up to the lower falls in the morning, I just love the colours of the moss and water. It was a bit cooler so not as busy as it has been when we gone up in the pass. Its about a mile round trip, and we took a long time as Little Miss walk about half way up, before going in the stroller.

Just a quiet afternoon before heading to Lake Louise for supper. I just love this photo of LM at the lake.
It was also the first time I seen a moose in the wild (sorry not a great photo)
On Monday we went for a bit of a walk in the wood before going to Banff. We find Banff a bit busy so didn't stay that long before heading home. It was a nice weekend, very relaxing.

I do love that photo of Little Miss standing in front of the grandeur of that waterfall! What a lovely weekend.
