A Short Visit to Lake Minnewanka

Saturday morning started off as another rainy day in Banff so we decided to take advantage of some indoor time to catch up on a bit of blogging.  In the afternoon, the sun began to peek out so we took our bikes out for a short jaunt on the trails around Lake Minnewanka, one of Banff’s most popular lakes. As it turns out, the trails are best suited to actual mountain bikes so our stiff hybrid bikes didn’t fair very long; buuut we still got to take in some amazing views of the lake and surrounding mountains!  The drive to and from Minnewanka provided some pretty special wildlife sightings as well.  It was a nice relaxing day to finish off our stay in Banff National Park!

Sunday would bring another much-anticipated adventure along the Icefields Parkway to our next destination: Jasper National Park.
