The National Parks have been calling my name! These are the days to answer that call while they are on the quiet side. I entered into Banff National Park with intentions to hike up Sulphur Mountain and then visit the townsite afterwards. Notice the warnings at the trailhead, go prepared so not to be a burden on the gondola facilities which these days are strictly for the customers who purchase a ticket to ride.

I went on, with my day. This photo shows Banff Avenue, the main street that runs through downtown Banff. You can see in the middle top, a little brown bump, that is what I just hiked up to. Banff Avenue is pedestrian only for now as are a couple of side streets. This was the view as I strolled along.

Like I mentioned earlier, being here was bitter sweet today!
I wish Banff and all of Banff National Park to be well!
