Sights around the Town of Banff
We got into town just before lunch and after a great lunch at Chaya -
by far the best Japanese food I've had in a while - we wound up eating
there 3 times in the four days we were in town. Today wasn't

Gondola ride to the top and some great views.
The perspective from the top is amazing. What you would normally
take hours of hiking can be had for a one time payment of just $21.50
(food not included).

males get fussy and sometimes damage tourists. Being fall I was
somewhat curious to see Elk, but not get close. Turns out they
were hanging out at the golf course.
