Roaming through Banff

I recently visited Banff, the national park with the cutest name in the world. Even though the main town is surrounded by mountains with names such as Sulphur Mountain, it is as far away from Mordor as one could imagine.

The area was first settled in 1880, as railway workers discovered hot springs near Sulphur Mountain. Fast forward to present day, and the area is one of the most popular destinations in Canada.

The Rocky Mountains in itself is a very impressive mountain range, reaching all the way from northern British Columbia down to New Mexico. The name is taken from their appearance as first described by a French explorer in 1752. The particular parts of the range in the Banff area are known as the Canadian Rockies.

"One would almost think that all this secrecy was made on purpose to keep the hordes of tourists away. Let them all perish in the crowds of Dubrovnik while the people of Montenegro can enjoy their beautiful country on their own. Or something like that."
