Behind the Name
Banff National Park in Canada is found in the Rocky Mountains and this beautiful place inspired the name of this pattern. The scenery is dominated by mountain peaks and turquoise glacier lakes and anyone hiking on the kilometers of trails should be watching for grizzly bears, cougars, timber wolves, moose, and bighorn sheep.
