The View From Norquay Mountain

For an extraordinary view of Banff and vicinity, Janet & Shaun took us up the road leading to the Norquay ski area. Halfway up the mountain, we got out of the car at a scenic viewpoint. I was not yet acclimitized to the elevation in this part of the country, so I was in the throes of altitude drunkeness (means I was light-headed, and my limbs were tingling pleasantly). The views of the Banff townsite were nothing short of spectacular. Walking out on the meadow before the severe dropoff was also an experience to remember, being so high up, yet so close to tumbling hundreds of metres to the base below.
