“One the most special experiences of my Canadian trip is staying at Fairmont Banff Springs hotel. We stayed in a Mountain View Room and enjoyed the site of these magnificent mountains. I just wish I could stay forever! At sunset go for a drive around Banff itself and you will be surprised by numerous animal encounters. Watching elk from 3 meter away was both fascinating and scary!” – @questforluxe, Australia
“Looks just as cool at night. Walk into the head and look up at its face towards the sky.” – @amescapades, San Francisco CA
