A Few Pictures From the Mountains

Saturday, October 3, 2015

I'm back from the mountains and thought I'd fill you in with a few pictures of my time away.  I had an amazing time with my friend and we walked all over the place, ate some amazing food, and hopefully burned off the calories with our walking!

I hope you'll think the pictures are a worthy update to my blog!

Getting ready to  take the ski-lift style chair up the mountain near Lake Louise.

At the restaurant near the top of the mountain. We had coffee or tea here.  What a view! 
The amazingly beautiful Lake Louise.  We had grabbed a quick bite inside the Chateau Lake Louise, but ate outside. 
The view from the top of Sulphur Mountain.  We risked life and limb* taking the gondola up and down!
My friend and I at the very, very top of Sulphur Mountain.  

*Not this time happily.  We could tell you a tale or two about the time we came down on the gondola about 25 years ago.  

It was a brilliant, amazing trip and we had the greatest time together!

Until next time.....

It's nice to see you in Canada! It's too bad you're far off from Banff over there.

Will you still be here when our depressing nations votes Harper into power again?

Well, at least we'll still be NDP in Alberta.

Hi Shonan LOvE...Nope, won't be here when the election happens. I wouldn't be able to vote anyway :-(

Banff was lovely...we had a blast!

Oh sweet, you went to Banff too! Nice one. Banff really is brilliant.

I went there a few weeks back for the Japan film fest, love the place.
