Trekking by the lakes

Trekking by the lakes

Just outside Banff we trekked around Lake Minnewanka and Two Jack Lake. Both picture perfect framed by wonderful silence.

Neither of us have walked in such a huge snowy landscape. The scale of the scenery and it’s complete lack of human footprint, set this landscape apart from Europe.

It’s good to be here pre-season. There’s a few RVs in the car park and a couple of Chinese tour groups, but that’s it.

We asked about bears. Yes – there are lots of Grizzly Bears and Yes – they have come out of hibernation by late April. We were advised to talk loudly as we walked and buy some bear spray.
