A few years ago, I had the opportunity to go to Calgary, Alberta. It was only for one night but the group I was with decided that it would be fun to take a trip up to Banff instead of stay in the Calgary area. I was skeptical at first, but I’m so glad that we did it. It was my first time in Alberta and I wanted to see as much as I could.
Like I said, it was a few years ago so that camera quality isn’t the best but I still love looking through these photos and remembering what it was like standing on top of Tunnel Mountain in Banff and being awestruck by my surroundings. I can’t wait to get out west again this summer and climb some more mountains!
Oh you know, just an elk and some wild horses to start off the trip nicely.
Even driving near Banff is beautiful.
We started our hike up Tunnel Mountain, it was by far the most beautiful place I have ever seen.

Near the top, at this point I was almost crying from being so close to the edge.
Our little hiking party, missing these folks like crazy!
As we made our trek back down the mountain (at times on our bums) we saw these little friends. They were very friendly and came right up to us.
This is one of my favourite pictures of all time.
We spent some time walking around Banff and had lunch. We didn’t have too much time so by dusk we headed back towards Calgary. I had such a fun time in Alberta, I can’t wait to go back west!
