Inukshuk Garden at Bow Falls
If you've ever been to Banff National Park, you'll know how easy it is to fill your day with wondrous natural and historic sights without traveling more than a few minutes between each one. You'll also know that Banff offers a totally different experience season to season. The last time we visited Bow Falls, the glacial fed lake was sapphire blue and glistening in the warm August sun. Canoes lined the pebbled shoreline, white water rushed down the low falls. Now, in late March, we encountered a entirely different vista. The diminished flow from the falls created a field of river stones protruding from the exposed & frozen lakebed. Naturally, one does what one should when presented with a bounty of large flat rocks. Get to building Inukshuks! Thus, we were able to have some fun adding to the growing inukshuk garden at Bow Falls. A temporary community art display of sorts. Banff in March, brisk, crisp and bursting with the promise of a lush spring!
