Banff

It all started with a hole in the ground. Three prospectors in the 1800's worried if they should attempt to explore that dark, smelly hole. What a boon they found! Hot water! Enter the railroad which saw $$$ if it chose this place as stop-over for the newly planned Canadian transcontinental railroad where it would place a hotel and offer hot springs' baths to its travelers. Endangered snails found only in Banff find their homes in these sulfuric hot springs, but tropical fish (mollies) deposited here by a gentleman who tired of his aquarium thrive throughout the frigid winters and can be seen in the flats.
