A few months ago we decided this Thanksgiving we should go somewhere to have a break. My husband has worked really hard and of course I’ve had non stop medical visits. Carcinoid cancer can cause me some challenges and new symptoms seem to appear every week, nevertheless it was important to make memories. I was looking forward to a turkey dinner, fresh air and observing the autumn/fall colours. It’s been a while since I’ve been to Banff and its only a couple hours drive at the most. Saturday morning was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and the skies were blue. Along the route came the views, here’s a couple of photos on route.
We stayed at the Rimrock Hotel as they were offering a Thanksgiving menu.
The hotel was amazing, on a mountain surrounded by mountains.
We went on the Banff Gondola, which was just a 5 minute walk from the hotel and we were blown away by the views.
The Sunday in the front lobby of the hotel, we were met by these guys.
Sunday we took the bus down the town and explored the shops of its delights. We had a lovely meal in an Irish pub, divulged a steak & guinness pie and a bottomless glass of Irish cider.
