Tracie and I went to Banff last week, thanks to the strike, we didn't have to pay to get in. We saw Lake Louise and Moraine Lake. Both are pretty nice if you like crowds of Olympic proportion (figuratively, not literally, the crowds in Athens seem pretty sparse).
This weekend, we went to Cardston to visit Tracie's Grandparents. We had a great visit. On Saturday, we headed out to Waterton Park. Waterton is way nicer than Banff. The view is better, the town isn't one big Gap, and there are way less people.
I for one, think Banff is nice, but I like Waterton better. By preventing all the giant hotels that Banff has, Waterton has dodged the internatational spotlight, and millions of tourists.
