Rain overnight and this morning along with snow. The mountains are 'socked' in. I won't complain about a day off!!
Then the sky started to clear so we headed out.
Went to Banff.....saw Bow Falls near the Banff Springs Hotel
We drove through some of the scenic area. This is Mount Rundle with Bow River and Hoodoos.
We rode the Banff Gondola ($31.45 off season) on Sulphur Mountain. The gondola climbs 2,292 feet to 7,486 feet.
At the top, snow started falling....what a treat.
We walked the one kilometer (.625 miles)boardwalk to the summit and the Cosmic Ray Station National Historic Site of Canada. The view was outstanding.
This is looking back at the top of the gondola ride and the boardwalk to the summit.
The Cosmic Ray Station, a Canada Historical Site
And the immediate area cleared....another shot of the top of the gondola ride.
Arrived back at the Bow Valley Park (saw 3 elk along the way) just as it started to hail and a thunderstorm came!
