The town of Banff is a juxtaposition I cannot capture easily.
It is typical of *destination* resort towns – small, absolutely packed with tourists, cars, & tour buses.
There no shortage of kitschy commercial offerings of all types.
Really, it is pretty much a shitshow.
However, with only the slightest effort – and the willingness to take any one of multiple uphill trails – it’s easy to get lost for hours and effectively escape the nonsense.
Having been here a few days, I am nicely settling into a cadence of morning hikes with Kelly followed by an afternoon spin on the bike while she does yoga.
We’ll make it work here.
