So on Wednesday I told you I went to the Banff Hot Springs after hiking up Sulphur Mountain...so I thought that today I'd better show a couple of shots of the hike. The first picture shows the lower part of the switchback trail which was snow-free. The upper stretches of the trail were much more snow-covered..fun for snowball fights! On a switch-back trail if you hurry ahead it's easy to throw snowballs down on your friends still toiling up the trail below! The second shot shows the Gondola...which is the easy way to get up the mountain! We took the Gondola down. This used to be free (a reward for the effort you put in to hike up) but not any more. :( At least the view is still free!
Calgary is a great city...lively and vibrant with friendly people! We have perfect weather, with clearly defined seasons. Winter is winter and it's cold and snowy but there's always ski-ing! Summers are hot but with a delightful cool breeze off the Rocky Mountains. And almost every day the sky is big and blue.
