We decided (and by we I mean Chris) that a fun trip was in order to celebrate our one year anniversary, graduation, and to get to have one more big trip with just the two of us before the baby comes. So to Canada we went! We flew into Calgary and drove to Banff (which is probably one of the most beautiful places i have ever been to). We had a total blast. My graduation gift from Chris was a new Nikon camera and it was perfect timing for our trip. Keep in mind, the pictures still don't do complete justice for how beautiful it really is. But here's the attempt to share it...

We stopped to take a picture on our way to Lake Louise
Lake Louise, absolutely gorgeous. It was still mostly frozen over...I know...hard to imagine for all of us Arizona folks that don't see ice at all.
The gondola ride up to the top of Sulfur Mountain.
The gorgeous view of the entire valley from the top of the mountain.
And the cute weather station on the top (which is no longer in use...but still cool to see).
And all the stairs we had to go up to get to the weather station. The combination of a higher altitude, windy weather, and being pregnant was not a very good one, but we made it (slowly).
This is the Banff Springs Hotel, it used to be an old castle.
Some of the falls...
And a cute bridge with a typical view of beautiful Canada.
And of course...Chris with the Belly dancer at the Greek restaurant.

This one of the best trips Chris and I have been on. It was absolutely gorgeous and a great escape for a week.

What more could you want?
