Starting a New Life / Van Morrison / 197i
The area was named Banff in 1884 by George Stephen, president of the Canadian Pacific Railway, recalling his birthplace near Banff, Scotland.
Spring is a somewhat of an ‘off season’ in Banff –
if we can say there is one?
Spring Skiing takes over as the main attraction and
the Ski Hills are very busy.
I never got into Skiing though. It was considered a rich persons
recreation around our place.
So over the years we’ve rarely gone to the mountains in Winter.
The snow makes everything look even more spectacular.
Forecast was for cloudy weather and more snow.
But who can predict weather around here?
Makes you feel small doesn’t it?
Hard to take a bad pic of a mountain.

Those amazing mountains — it’s got to be wonderful.
We love to go up there – especially during ‘run off’. The streams and waterfalls are spectacular.
This is another great post about your trip to Banff. These are great pictures of the mountains and roads leading into the mountains. It looks like some snow has melted in the fields that are along the roads. Did you stay in downtown Banff? I hope you had a nice Easter.
Quinn my friend!
We stayed only 2 nights in 2 different hotels. I’ll try to cover some of that as soon as Rose sends over her pics. It was a very nice time for us.
Spring in the Rockies! A bit slower than down on the prairie, but a wonderful time.
I have heard so much about Banff. Nice pictures, JC
It’s not a cinch to take a half decent pic from a moving car. But fortunately the mountains themselves don’t move and they’re a big target.
