Visiting Lake Louise/Banff

It's gorgeous up here, it's also Canada Day today-like our fourth of July. I keep forgetting I'm in another country until we try to buy something with our American money. Finally broke down and found an ATM to get some Canadian money-it feels like play money. Most things gas, food and lodging we can charge with our credit card and our bank at home will make take care of the conversion from Canadian to US dollars. We couldn't even get close to Lake Louise today it was too crowded but saw lots of other gorgeous sights on the way there. Glaciers on the tops of most mountains.

Great shots of my beloved Rockies, Lin! And I got a kick out of your take on the money. Did you ever see the old pink 2-dollar bill? That one was a hoot!

The scenery is just so awesome. I know what you mean about Canadian money, it does look so different from our own....
