Travelling through the Canadian Rockies is an experience everyone should have at least once in their life. I have had that privilege several times and each time I am in awe of the beauty I see.
This will be the last pictures from Banff,at least for a while. I do have some more,but they may or may not surface here at some time.
Today we start by taking one last,closer look at the glacier at the far end of Lake Louise.
I must preface the following images with a little background.Let me just say that I am not a huge fan of heights and on a previous ride up a gondola,I was less than excited.This happened MANY years ago and at that time I said I would never put myself through that again.Well,promises are often broken and when my son and granddaughter wanted to ride the gondola up Sulphur Mountain,I gathered all the courage I could and decided to join them.I now needed to prove to Kai that Grandma could handle this. I made it to the top,as this is taken from the top of the ride.
For the record,let me say,I enjoyed the ride up as well as down.I am glad I chose to do this and would do it again. This fella greeted us at the top of the mountain.The Bighorn Sheep is a beautiful animal.
The views from the top were breathtaking.
Framing this peak with a few branches added depth to the picture.
This is the same mountain,giving a broader view. Please notice the beautiful green ribbon of a river.
This is just another view.Beauty was literally all around me.
Last but certainly not least is a poor photo of the gorgeous and huge Banff Springs Hotel. I got this shot from up on Sulphur Mountain,zooming in as far as possible. If I had an endless supply of money,I might want to stay there,but the reality is that I will leave that for people who are much wealthier than me.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing Banff through my eyes,as much as I enjoyed sharing this adventure with you.
