It is impossible to overlook the grandeur of Banff's surroundings. We walked into town from the trailer park along this river, enjoying the solitude and watching for wildlife. No charismatic megafauna spotted.
Our view of the Banff Hotel - taken from the north bank of the river. I cropped out of the lower frame the scores of tourists crowding for views of our side.
The town of Banff sports a large number of restaurants, taverns, gift shops and services for the multitude of visitors - including a first rate laundromat and information centers.
