They had Ice Explorer vehicles so that you could traverse the fields of ice. We have seen too many survival shows and movies to know that getting on one could not possibly end well.
And then in the midst of snow and ice you get views like this one.
And then we saw sheep! We kept calling them goats but the park authorities are so appreciative when you properly identify them as sheep.
‘Twas the first of many, many wild animal sightings on this trip. Many.
Strutting by. Like a boss.
Not included here because I didn’t manage to snap in time: mama & tiny baby sheep just next to us. So very cute, so very close. Baaaaa.
The majority of this weekend has been spent with ze birdies either cuddled in the crook of my shoulder or napping on my lap. Aw, I missed you too, babies.

At Lake Louise
One of the best parts is that there are so many random paths to follow.
(Just make sure you don’t end up hiking 5 hours through the valley of beautiful destruction, as occurred during the last time we went to Banff.)
I may have sung a few The Sound of Music tunes during our stay.
Aaaaand last of our road trip pics. I have gained a whole new appreciation and respect for national and provincial parks. Definitely need to return to Banff one day.
First shot was at Johnston Canyon. The rest were at Lake Louise. The Teahouse is too far away.
Where we had our high tea. It was so good.
I’m not even kidding how gorgeous this place is.
Sin is picky when it comes to her bread. It has to be whole wheat and freshly soft. The girl has it made.
