This is a postcard of the resort town of Banff Alberta Canada one of Canada's major destinations for tourists. Banff is located in Canada's first National Park and is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Banff is well known for the Banff Springs Hotel established after the transcontinental railway line was built connecting all of Canada in the late 1800's.

This is a major destination for hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter at the nearby Mount Norquay, Sunshine Village and Lake Louise ski hills.
It's a beautiful town to spend a day in or for a weekend retreat. There are great restaurants, shopping, and yummy smelling and tasting chocolate shops.
I am sending this postcard to my favourite math teacher from highschool. We have kept in touch over the years and I am sure he will be delighted to find this postcard in his mailbox.
I will be heading to Banff myself Monday to meet up with the Wiens family from Ottawa who are coming to Alberta to visit family and to enjoy some skiing on REAL mountains.

  1. I love both your postcards. Yes, I can picture many a child sitting at the beach, shovel in hand, filling and filling their little buckets.


Leaving a comment is like sending a postcard; we'd love to hear from you.
