I vividly remember my first visit to Banff. The mountains amazed me and their silent beauty awed me beyond anything I have ever imagined. It was when we got to Lake Louise and I stood there, looking out at the frozen lake under a thick blanket of snow, that I felt truly at peace.I am definitely not an outdoorsy kind of girl. Sure, I love the beauty of nature, but I prefer my outdoors to be on patios. However, when we got to Banff, there was a part of me that felt surprisingly comfortable among the mountains. Imagine that!
