Another view of the C-Level Cirque in Banff National Park from a hike in the middle of August.
Near the top of Cascade Mountain in Banff National Park is this geological feature carved out by an ancient and long-gone glacier. This is the “back side” of Cascade Mountain: the other side is what you see when you look eastward down the main street in the Banff town site.
Returned to Banff National Park on Friday to hike up Cascade Mountain with a friend. Afterwards, we took over a couple of Muskoka chairs on the shore of Lake Minnewanka for a quick, late lunch — with a nice view on the side.
Here are a few more snaps from a visit around the town of Banff last weekend.
Looking east(ish), above, through the trees at the top of Tunnel Mountain. Below, from top to bottom, Cascade Mountain looms over Banff Avenue, seen from bridge over the Bow River; looking west(ish) along the Bow River and the Canadian Pacific rail line, from top of Tunnel Mountain; and two images from the Marsh Loop trail.
