Hi After all my questions, we are finally here in Banff. All I can say is Wow!! Yesterday we went to lake Louise as advised. OMG it's so beautiful. It was frozen solid. the weather is perfect. It's so sunny. We went to the ski resort there and went up in the ski lift. It's the most breath taking view that I have ever seen, and a must do on anybody's list. It was so cold. We also went to Johnsons falls on the way back. It's quite a hike, but worth it. He we had to peel off the layers as it was very hot in the sun. Suffering with the jet lag. So in bed by nine. Up again this morning to do Lake Minniwanka, Banff Gondola and the hot springs.
Thank you fro all the info you all provided. It's been essential. X
