A winter trip into the mountains
Whilst I had a mate over to stay recently we decided it was a good idea to go up to the Rockies, heck he’d not been there before so we really had to. It was darn cold though, but very much worth it.
We started the day by diverting from going straight to Banff by a quick look at Lake Minnewanka from above (as the normal road we would have taken was closed for the winter):
We actually then missed the turning to Banff and so went straight up to Lake Louise where we were met by people skating, hockey being played and some epic ice sculptures…
I even walked across the ice.. really kinda cool.
After a short snack in Banff we decided that we had to go up a mountain. Fourtunately for us Sulphur mountain on t’other side of Banff has a gondolla that goes up it. Its not cheap ~$30 but well worth it.
We even made it up to the cosmic ray station…
This was topped off with dinner at Saltlik in Banff – not great option for veggies but what they have is fantastic. If you like Steak, go there, from what I’m told.
