On our hike up to Plain of Six Glaciers Tea House, we saw an avalanche on Mount Lefroy in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada, near Lake Louise.
Sorry for the windy audio!
Lake Louise is definitely an early morning destination you won’t want to miss if you’re in Banff National Park, Canada.

Enjoy these amazing views of the Lower Waterfall at Johnston Canyon in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada.
If you want to see waterfalls in Banff National Park, Canada, this is one hike you won’t want to miss!
The trail to the waterfalls has to be the busiest in the Canadian Rockies. Throughout the summer, hundreds of hikers follow its canyon-clinging catwalks and cliff-mounting staircases to the gorge’s Lower and Upper Falls.
TripTip: Evening and very early in the morning is the best way to avoid the crowds. Better yet, stay at Johnston Canyon Lodge to beat the crowds when the Bow Valley Parkway is closed from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m., March 1 to June 25.
Enjoy these Johnston Canyon trail photos. I’ll share photos of the waterfalls starting tomorrow!
When you are in Banff National Park, between the city of Banff and Lake Louise you have the option to travel either on the Trans Canadian Highway or along the Bow Valley Parkway.
If you have the time, take the Bow Valley Parkway, which is slower, less traveled. We saw so much wildlife including this male Mule Deer.
TripTip: There are mandatory travel restriction from March 1 to June 25. During the hours of 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. no vehicle, bicycle or foot traffic is permitted on the eastern section of the parkway from the Johnston Canyon Campground to the entrance at the Trans Canada Hwy/Bow Valley Parkway interchange. After the long winter, this allows the animals the undisturbed time they need to feed and roam in this important wildlife corridor.
Love those big ears!

In addition to maybe seeing Mountain Goats, this jaw-dropping walk along the glass-floored Skywalk at the cliff’s edge is definitely a must-do and -see!
When you book your trip to walk on Athabasca Glacier, you also have the chance to include walking on the Columbia Icefield Skywalk.
#1 TripTip: The only way to get to the Skywalk is by purchasing a ticket at the Columbia Icefield Center and riding a bus. No cars are allowed to park at the Skywalk.
#2 TripTip: Be sure to purchase your tickets before your trip!
A few photos from the Skywalk!
