Mini Trip to Alberta: Calgary – Banff – Lake Louise

With Brent being away for work for a couple weeks.. and with a surprise Air Canada seat sale, this past weekend I took a little trip to Alberta to visit him. I flew into Calgary on Thursday, spent Friday sightseeing in the city, then we drove up to Banff that (mid-late) afternoon. I have never been there before, and definitely have never seen the Canadian Rockies up close, but wow.. so incredibly beautiful! Had an amazing time in Banff on Friday night and Saturday, then we continued on to Lake Louise Saturday afternoon. Sunday morning we headed out of Banff National Park and into Jasper National Park where we went up to the Columbia Icefields, where I walked around on a glacier.
