We took the scenic drive through the park. Around each steep corner was another beautiful view of the mountains. My camera shutter was constantly flicking. The only problem is that pictures don't really give the sights justice. You really need to experience it for yourself.
We arrived in Fernie, B.C. in time for supper and had a nice walk around this beautiful mountain town. Even from our room the view was amazing. The next morning we did a little drive to see the ski hill and then headed towards Canmore. We made a stop at Fort Steele and walked through the historic village there.
As we walked around the fort Ron seemed to be attracting cats. When he knelt down to pet them they jumped up on him and would snuggle around his neck and even followed him like a little puppy would. I think he must be the cat whisperer.
Along the way we stopped in Radium for a relaxing dip in the hot springs. It is so nice to travel when the roads are quiet and you have the attractions along the way almost to yourself.
When we arrived in Banff we easily found a spot to park and walk the streets. This was much different then the last few times we visited this beautiful little town. We looked through a few stores and treated ourselves to some fudge.

From Banff we drove the short distance into Canmore and spent our second night in the heart of the mountains. It was another wonderful time of making the most of our days off. When we got home on Wednesday Ron left for two days of training in Edmonton and I worked Thursday and Friday.
Today we woke up to rain and Ron went to work. I went to Red Deer with a new friend to a Christmas craft show. Yup, Christmas is coming very soon. It will be fun this year to have Stephen around for Christmas time. I certainly will make the most of that time.
The sun is shining now and it has turned into a beautiful day. I think I will go and make the most of it!
