When we arrived in this area of Canada, we realized there was going to be a lot to do. We had to make up our minds which ones were top priority. We only planned one week, which was not nearly enough.

We heard about a special deal from Brewster Travel and we jumped right on it. For $99 each, you get tickets to the three most exciting things to do in the area. The Columbia Icefield Adventure, the Banff Lake Minnewanka Cruise and the Banff Gondola. It was a great deal, saving us a lot of money. If you are in the area, be sure to ask for this special.

We used part two of our tickets today. We cruised Lake Minnewanka and also visited more lakes in the area. We saw a lot of Rocky Mountain Longhorn Sheep all around the lake. When we got off the boat, they were even in the streets and would not move out of the way for the cars. :-) It was funny watching them all over the roads. They are all going through a molt and look funny right now with missing patches of fur. See last picture for a close up.

The lake cruise was awesome. After the cruise we had lunch at Tony Roma's in Banff. We are really enjoying every day we have to spend in Canada.
