#30 – Grassi Lake Falls

Oct 30th, 2016 – After a conquering Bow Falls (see last post – http://albertawaterfallchasers.com/2016/11/10/29-bow-falls/ ) and getting a good night’s sleep in Banff at the Douglas Fir Resort & Chalets, our short trip was coming to an end with just one more stop to go – Grassi Lake Falls.

Oct 29th, 2016 – Well we went to Jasper a few times, and then the Bighorn Dam area I think once…so now we decided to mix it up and go down to Banff.  Our target was the touristy Johnston Canyon: a hopefully easy way to knock 5 Falls off our list.  After the 4+ hours of driving however we ran into a big obstacle…the Canyon was closed!  We didn’t even contemplate that; it was apparently due to repairs.  After a little bit…
