Day 16 - Moraine Lake
And then... just like that we're on our last day.
Mr M still not on top of his game so whilst the two younger ones looked after him (... not... they used him as an excuse to stay behind), No 1 and I went on another expedition.
Takakkaw Falls. (Best name btw)
A short drive from Moraine Lake (short in Canadian terms... make it 50 minutes... which is huge in English terms, right?), it's really worth a visit. You can't actually see the top of the fall but it measures 387m. Seven times the height of Niagara falls. Bonkers.
And you can walk right near its bottom (treacherous and don't get too close... you get swept away by the fast river and next you know you're singing with the angels) and get totally sprayed by the mist.
Which, if you're sad like me, it's totally exciting.
And your fifteen yr old son will walk away embarrassed. We're at that stage in our relationship, obvs.
In the afternoon we mooched around Banff (nice place, although I'm totally kicking myself for not seeing the Hudson Bay Company store till we were driving home... doh!) and then ended our holiday at the hot springs.
(hot actually, but you know what I mean)
Bye bye Canada.
You've been amazing.
Miss you already.
