Beautiful Banff - Day 2

Started off today with this breakfast panini (egg, cheese, tomato) and flat white at Good Earth Coffee. It was -26 degrees F out when we left the hotel to walk to the restaurant. BRR!!
I dropped Brian off at Lake Louise Ski Resort and headed out for some solo cross-country skiing adventures. (In case you missed it in past posts, I am not a fan of heights or the ski lift, and grew up cross-country skiing, so Banff was a perfect place for both of us to find what we wanted.) I didn't come across a single person all morning on the trails.
I finished up my skiing for the day and headed back to the lodge to find Brian for lunch. The place was swarming with people, so we went to one of the sit-down restaurants, Kuma Yama. I had the Grizzly Bear roll (avocado, salmon sashimi, spicy salmon salad), the jalapeƱo yellowtail and a tiny bottle of prosecco. I sat and read for a bit while Brian finished up his last runs of the day.

On our way to/from Lake Louise back to Banff, I kept seeing people stop and take pictures here. There was no one waiting when we drove back to our hotel so I hopped out and Brian took this shot of me swinging between letters.
After hot showers and walking around looking for the perfect (yet-to-be-found) Canadian ski hat, we headed to Bear Street Tavern for some pizza. Brian had the one on top (the Big Bird) and I made my own (spicy marinara, cheese, and pineapple). It was a cozy way to end an action-packed day!
