Monday Walk: Bow River

_W5A0284-Bow

Banff National Park in Canada had been on our bucket list for long while. We finally decided to take a grand tour in July. We stayed in the town of Banff and used it as a base to explore Rocky Mountains, lakes… The beautiful Bow river runs through the town. It was only a half mile from where we were staying, pretty convenient to take morning and/or evening walk.

The name “Bow” refers to the reeds that grew along its banks and were used by the local First Nations peoples to make bows; the Peigan name for the river is “Makhabn”, meaning “river where bow reeds grow”.

On our last day in Banff, hubby didn’t want to miss the Wimbledon Semi Finals, so I took a solo walk with my camera. 🙂  5 miles to downtown and back to the Banff Springs.

The weather was surprisingly warm during the week (the first week of July) we were there. It went up to low 90 F one day, but mornings were very pleasant. We were told by the local people that it was 7-8 degrees higher than normal.

Jo’s Egton Bridge walk for this week is fabulous. Take a look
