This summer was my first trip to the Canadian Rockies. I grew up near the Sierra Nevadas, I’ve snowboarded in the US Rockies and the Andes. I’ve trekked through the Himalayas.
But the Canadian Rockies are something special.
This photo shows the view from the top of the Banff Gondola atop Sulphur Mountain at 7486 feet in elevation. While it gives you the idea of how beautiful these mountains are, it doesn’t do justice to the fact that this stunning view continues in a 360 degree panorama.
