Banff, Alberta is beautiful any time of year, but against a backdrop of fall colours, the postcard scenery pops. It’s impossible not to fall under its spell. The crisp snow on mountain peaks, the splashes of leafy reds and yellows, the crystalline streams cascading down rocky inclines – they’re all part of Banff’s autumn charm.
On our hike to Stewart Canyon, we skirted around peaceful Lake Minnewanka.

View through the windows of the Banff Springs Hotel (Fairmont). I've never stayed here, but like many tourists, I visit and gawk at the views every time I am in Banff. Stunning!

My favourite spot along the Bow Valley Trail. Stands of trees give a mystical feel to an already beautiful hike.
