Best time ever!!!!

The most spectacular scenery in the world, all to yourself. The park is vast and no matter how many people are there, (outside of Banf which is a little touristy and over populated with Asian tourists), you have the place to yourself. The horseback, trekking, rafting, snowmobiling all fantastic, in every season. Too much to even begin to describe from the Continental Divide, to the waterfalls and hidden valleys. The BEST is the Post Hotel. A Swiss Chef with exquisite and impeccable service and food.We cannot wait to go back.
