Just another great thing to do while in the area. It was great to see the display of the trains going through the mountains We would have liked to spend more time but we had several things to do that day . We got some fantastic pictures of the actual tunnel .

As we were staying on Tunnel Mountain Road, we thought we'd give the drive a try on the way back to where we were staying. The views by the parking areas weren't anything special, so I assume the views up the small trails in the area were better. What was good was the male elk we got to see with... More

Every time we visit the town of Banff we have to do this drive. It’s just beautiful. Going through the winding road of the mountains we always stop at the view point across the Bow River. From there, we can see a majestic view of the valley & the Banff Springs Hotel, a landmark in the area. It’s like an... More
