We are lucky enough to live within a couple of hours drive of Banff, in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. It’s hard to believe that this international destination is actually in our backyard!
We took some time to visit this weekend.
Our first stop was, not surprising for us, the Banff Avenue Brewing Company.
Where they have a selection of house brewed beers that, I can assure you, are worth the trip. My favorites? The Head Smashed IPA and the Lower Bankhead Black Pilsner.
Adequately refreshed, we took the gondola up to the top of Sulphur Mountain.
The next day we headed to Lake Louise for some skating.
Next time, we’ll try the sleigh.
Believe me when I tell you that my pictures don’t do it justice. It is breath-catchingly beautiful in every season and always worth the trip!
