Banff National Park

By Paddiespoetry | paddiespoetry | 24 Feb 2023



Banff National Park is truly a hidden gem. It's the kind of place that makes you forget about all your worries, and just soak up the beauty of nature. Recently, I went on a hiking adventure with my three amigos, and let me tell you, it was one for the books.

We woke up at the crack of dawn, which was a miracle in and of itself since we're not exactly morning people. But we were excited to tackle a new trail, and maybe even see some wildlife along the way. Spoiler alert: we did, but more on that later.........

As we set off, the air was so crisp and fresh that it felt like we were inhaling liquid oxygen. I couldn't help but marvel at the sound of a nearby stream, which was as soothing as a spa soundtrack. But as we climbed higher and higher, my lungs started to feel like they were on fire. I swear, I've never wheezed so much in my life. One of my buddies even started to resemble Darth Vader...

Finally, we reached the summit, and I was blown away. The view was so stunning that it almost made up for the fact that I was panting like a pug. I think we were all a little speechless, which is saying something since we're usually quite the chatty bunch..

But the real adventure started on the way down. We stumbled upon a family of deer, which was cool at first, but then they wouldn't move out of the way! I'm pretty sure they were just trying to show off their cute fawn, but come on, guys, we have places to be! And then, a marmot appeared out of nowhere, and it seemed like it wanted to be our new best friend. I'm not sure if it was attracted to our smell or our wit, but it followed us for a good 10 minutes. We named it Marty, and even sang it a little tune. Hey, when you're in Banff, you gotta be a little silly...

As the day wore on, we grew more and more exhausted. We trudged through dense forests and fields of wildflowers, and I swear I almost stepped on a snake at one point. Luckily, it was just a stick that looked like a snake. My buddies didn't let me hear the end of that one.

Finally, we made it back to our campsite, and collapsed around a campfire. We swapped stories, roasted marshmallows, and just enjoyed each other's company. Looking back on the day, I realized that it was exactly what I needed - a chance to disconnect, be silly, and take in the beauty of the world around us. Banff, you've won our hearts.


Hope you guys have a wonderful day. Thanks for reading :}
