    Default Island on the way to Banff?

    Does anyone know the name of that "island" with a bench I believe on the way to Banff? It's right before a shaper turn on the road

    The one in Lac Des Arcs? The one with the picnic table and a flag? Usually metis flag, I think. Don't think it's named.

    I think it's called "Turtle Island". At least that is what we always called it, I don't know if it is official or not.

    There's no name for it. It literally is know as the little island with the picnic bench on it.

    Yeah well I wonder how they get the soft flowing caramel inside the Caramilk bar but you don't see me making a god damn thread about it. Slap your wife Baygirl, straighten him out.

    I am assuming this is the one we are referring to.

    Yes! Has a flag and table. Looking to hopefully head out there when the weather gets better.

    It’s the ‘Hey Tourist, stop blocking traffic and pull off the road to look at the lump of dirt’ island. There needs to be more.
