We left Calgary this morning and drove the short distance to Banff National Park. Thankfully the fact we were arriving a day earlier than we had planned and booked was not a problem for the hotel and we were able to settle into our room without any problem.
We went for a wander down the main street and stopped in some of shops filled with gifts and souvenirs. After lunch we went back to our hotel room and had a well earned rest for the afternoon. This was the first real rest day we have had since we arrived in the US so it was well needed.
We checked out some maps and pamphlets about Banff and started to plan what we were going to do for the next two days.
