Day 2: Calgary #28days

Waking up to birds chirping loudly,  we woke up too early to enjoy the Canyon Hot Springs, which open at 9am. We packed up and made our way to Golden, BC  instead for breakfast.

A diner located on the entrance strip consisting of gas stations and motels, Legendz has been around for a number of years. A popular stop for both locals and tourists,  Legendz offers your typical 50s  burgers menu plus an all-day breakfast menu but with friendly and amazing service that I haven’t experienced in awhile.

I had their pancake special consisting of two fluffy buttermilk pancakes,  4 thin but nicely cut slices of ham and two eggs over easy. Overall quite delicious for $8. My fave was the ham…should have gotten double the meat!

My bf ordered the corned beef and hash,  which had the right amount of seasoning and the potatoes were nice and crisp. The meal also came with a side of thick toast.

After a hearty meal we made our way to Banff , making a couple of scenic stops at The Natural Bridge at Kicking Horse River and Emerald Lake in Yoho National Park.

In Banff it was hot springs time. For $7.30 you can enjoy some time soaking in the outdoor mineral pool,  which was supposedly heated to 39 degrees Celsius but felt like less since it was quite hot in the sun in comparison.

We managed to get into Calgary before dinner time and enjoyed some $1 slider burgers at Dickens Pub before my bf’s gig opening for hip hop electronic violinist Kytami!  Amazing show,  great service staff,  and wonderful upbeat crowd and venue. Can’t wait to come back to Calgary on my next music trip!
