Banff Gondola Sulphur Mountain: Part 1

The ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain on the Banff Gondola is an easy way to take in countless views in just a few hours time. From the top of the mountain you can clearly see the town of Banff, the famous Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, and you can take the short hike to the Cosmic Ray Station historic site.  

Naturally, I was keen to take the ride up the mountain for the numerous photo ops to include in my Rocky Mountain portfolio. There's a nice wooden walkway at the top with plenty of lookouts, and you can also venture off and hike the trails to escape the crowds. I had my own gondola on the ride down, which was really nice as I could kick my feet up and marvel at the views I had all to myself. It was great experience!
