Glacier and Banff
September was a crazy month and it all started as I (Evan) left home and flew to Kalispell. After a late arrival I picked up my car and like any good traveler, slept in the Wal-Mart parking lot. The next morning I headed towards Banff. The views began as soon as I started to drive up the west side of the Rockies. I entered Banff through Kootenay National Park and spent two days around Lake Louise and Moraine Lake. Many of the views didn’t even seem real and Moraine Lake is one of the most breathtaking places I have ever seen. The blue water and majestic mountains reflecting aren’t done justice by photos.
After Banff I drove towards Yoho National Park by way of Takakkaw Falls. Takakkaw is the second highest waterfall in Canada and one not to be missed. Then it was back to Montana through Calgary and on to Glacier National Park. The west entrance of Glacier was closed due to active wildfires so I took the east entrance into the park. The next several nights were spent car camping in the national forest (in the in the middle of absolute nowhere) and days all around the areas of Two Medicine, Many Glacier and Waterton Lakes (back across the Canadian Border).
The town of Waterton Lakes looks like something out of the Austria. It’s beautiful and could almost be mistaken for the Alps. Waterton also has a really good hotdog spot to enjoy while you take in the view. Shoutout to Wieners of Waterton (yes, that’s the actual name of the place). I headed back to Glacier from Wieners and left car camping for an Airbnb to prepare for the elopement I was filming in East Glacier. After capturing a great couple and their awesome ceremony, I headed to bed because I had a plane to catch… to Hawaii…
