The view from our apartment. As it was a celebration of my birthday and our wedding anniversary, we got 'a room with a view'. These mountains are the Three Sisters and are symbolic of Canmore.
We did drive into Banff, and the scenery there is equally spectacular:
You can catch a gondola (cable car) partway up Sulphur Mountain, and then climb (OK, it really is a walk, but you do get to ascend quite a bit higher) to the weather station at the top. And this is what you get to see!
We went to the Hot Springs as well, which was lovely, relaxing and rather bizarre - just sitting in hot water is a little strange!!
Another day was spent around Two Jacks Lake - a gorgeous place, and very photogenic.
It was strange being without the dogs for a few days, but so lovely to get away. The air smells sweeter, the pace of life is slower and we came back feeling most refreshed. Until next time - we love you Canmore!
