Default Beauty (Banff National Park) meets the Beast..(ZR1)

One of the rare times we left our dog at home and headed out the front door with the ZR1 for a nice day at Banff and Lake Louise. A short 65 minutes later and it was Kodak moment time over and over and over.... Hope you enjoy.

Great looking car and even greater looking scenery. I always love driving through areas just like yours but down here in the states. Haven't been in western Canada but have been through the eastern parts quite a bit. Happy cruising.

Beautiful pictures! Funny how the Canadian and American definition of a "killer rack" are quite different.

Wow, takes me back ... Banff, Lake Louise, Mount Rundle ... one of the most beautiful places on earth, and some great skiing. Awesome backdrop for your super-nice ZR1. GM needs to do some photo shoots there for their promo stuff. WOW.

Awesome car and pictures, thanks for sharing. I was out there about 9 years ago and really want to go back after seeing those pics!! The $ exchange rate was a lot better for us in the states back then!
