Canada: In Banff, stunning vistas, fairytale hotels and elk nachos

As was once common in these Canadian Rockies, we struck gold this week. Well, photographic gold. Check out Al Seib's shots of Banff and surrounding attractions. It's a mixture of castle-like hotels and breathtaking natural scenery. The hotels are easy to spot. So is the scenery. But finding the raging waters of Bow Falls took a little digging. Well worth the effort -- a wedding dress of whitewater and mist a short walk from town.
