September 24 – 25, 2014: Canmore will hold a special place in my heart. It was our first Canadian mountain town and it was lovely.
We woke our first morning to find stunning mountains as the backdrop for our campsite and friendly locals with suggestions and advice. We spent two days easing into our new relaxed lifestyle. We strolled around town, visited the local Grizzly Paw (of The Grizzly Paw Brewing Company), enjoyed fresh bread and fruit from the farmers market, walked a leisurely path around the Bow River, and hiked to see Grassi Lakes – which provided our first stunning view of the mountains from an elevation. I could get used to this atmosphere!
