Today I post Banff. Glacier National was amazing; Banff and the drive there was better. Well, once we got out of Calgary anyway. We took the gondola to the top of the mountain and did a little stair hiking up to a shed made in the 1800s by a man who hiked this mountain over 1000 times to get weather readings. This was the ride . . .
. . . And the view from the top.
We were learning new camera things as well, and the zoom is pretty good. This is the Banff Springs hotel - it's pretty much a castle. And the color of the water you see here is pretty close to what it really is. Just a milky pure blue. Beautiful!
Everywhere we went people volunteered to take our picture and we took theirs. The sun was so bright that my eyes were crying. Or maybe I was missing my kids. You choose.
Again, Mark was playing with the zoom, and got this picture of a mountain Spire.
The Banff hotel - view from the parking lot. Pretty, eh? (gotta say that because it was Canada.)
