Yesterday, we had about a two-hour tour of Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel by a lad in plaid. We saw and learned a lot.
Starting in 1911, a wholly new structure was built in stages to replace the 1888 hotel. The original Shingle style-influenced wooden structure was replaced with a new building of concrete and faced with stone, and now insulated for year-round use. It is beautiful, but a tad pricey to stay here:
The gang thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and entertainment of “Oh Canada Eh.”
Today is our last day in Banff, so we are soaking up some more of this beautiful scenery…at a higher elevation.
Having a fine time. WYWH, y’all!
