So the beautiful weather continued and we made it to Lake Louise Village where we went to the visitor center. The number of tourists in Banff is quite unbelievable July and August are the worst times to be there. But our plan was to follow the advice of the gal at the visitor center and take our kayak up to Lake Moraine at 7:30 that evening and then drive up to Lake Louise at 7 the next morning to beat the crowds. These were the two main things I wanted to do. And then a few hours later, this.
The smoke came in so quickly. No way will see those beautiful lakes. Our plans after that were to go to glacier national park in Montana. After doing some research I discovered that there were fires in Glacier too. That’s it! Between the tourists and the smoke, we are done. Heading home. And to be honest, after being gone almost five months, we are ready to head home.
In Banff, they have built these bridges for the wildlife to cross the road safely.
We drove all day and the smoke never was gone. Sometimes it was worse than others but it was always there
Here’s a little bit of blue sky in Montana. It is so beautiful and we will definitely be back!
We hope to be home on Saturday!
