It is hard to believe that it has been 22 years since the pool closed at the Cave and Basin. I have many memories of swimming with the stunning view from there. The other childhood memory that will always be there is the sulphur smell from the cave. It takes a bit of an adjustment but it is worth visiting. Canada's National Parks started here and it is a great look at history.
Now if they could just update the movie that features "modern day Banff" with a marquee for Superman 2.
Inexpensive and with some nice paths to walk in the spring it is worth going whether a first time visitor or someone who has memories of previous visits.
