Hanging With Sasquatch

Up in the Canadian Rocky Mountains there is a small Hamlet know as Banff, Alberta Canada.  Early in my travels when I would look at the map on the last page of the In Flight Magazines I would look and dream about the destinations.  Always curious about the odd name Banff? How do you pronounce that place and whats there? Bow Valley, Banff Alberta Canada Well I came to find that I Absolutely Love Canada! So many Great cities and People?  I found Banff about a 2 hour Scenic Drive from Calgary, actually the scenery really starts as you near the town of Canmore.  I have been lucky to have some great times there Banff,  I’m not sure if its Canadians love for me and Foreign Travelers or my uncanny resemblance t a CFL ( Canadian Football League) Player, and Grey Cup Winner.  I think I look nothing like this dude at all, Marvin “Big Daddy” Pope, but they are a bit short on Bro’s on Alberta so I guess we look a like. Plus I have been called “Big Daddy” before?  All over town people thought I was actually this guy,  from drunks at the bar Cheering to me and buying drinks, mindless rambling about the Grey Cup (which at the time I had no idea is they CFL version of the Super Bowl), free entry in night clubs, VIP status.  This was so funny to me, the other Canadians I was with were in astonishment that I knew people in Canada and I was so popular, lol.  I need to plan some more trips to Alberta!

Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel

Banff Springs Hotel

I love this Hotel.   When I get Married ( A Day That My Mother Reminds Me Of, my parents threaten me with Mail Order Brides) this will be a place I want to share along with a long list of other destinations.  This hotel was built by  Canadian Pacific Railway in 1888.  Banff makes for a great Winter Adventure. I have many great stories and of trips here and fun times.
