With winter tires finally on my car and a road report that says good to go, I was now ready to go. With a recent snowfall of a few centimeters and a weather forecast for cold + crisp + clear, I wanted to get caught up in all this. Banff National Park was the place, up Sulphur Mountain I would set the pace. I arrived to only two others ahead of me, one turned back very early, the gondola would not run until 10:00am so this meant it was very, very quiet here.
It was so easy to focus this morning, eyeing the beauty as I ascended, hearing nothing but my breathing and the off & on crunch of my spike in the packed snow. I took only two stops along the way, one to delayer and sip my beverage then one photo opportunity. I reached the deck and the beauty was as it always is although I took some time to make sure to appreciate it a bit more on this Remembrance Day. This was the first time I noticed the coloring on the sign. I sported orange and turquoise too!
I arrived at the observation deck to this view.
It was cold! It was windy! It was awesome!
The heated igloo is open and inviting.
I spent a little time inside warming up, enjoying my tea and the view.
