Hiking Mount Sulphur

On our first full day we decided to head to the town of Banff and hike up Mount Sulphur then ride the gondola down.

We had only made it about a third of the way up at this point and I was still doing ok.

Still only about a third of the way up and we were being rewarded with fantastic views.

At about the halfway mark we could see the town of Banff.

Great shot of the gondola…if you can see it through the smokey haze.

We had stopped so I could make every attempt to catch my breath when some friendly people offered to take our picture.  I look happy, but inside I was dying like a fish out of water.  The higher we went the more I struggled to breath.

The view from the top of Mount Sulphur.  I wish it was clearer, but the smoke from the wildfires in Washington made it so hard to see any views.

Our view from inside the gondola riding down the mountain.  Going down was certainly a LOT easier than going up 🙂

  1. I could envision what you WEREN’T saying by the few words you used to describe the experience.

    I once walked up Mt. Shasta . I was most of the way up and had to sit down (couldn’t catch my breath). And at the time, I was in great shape! I felt so humiliated that 10 year old children were passing me by.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
