Banff is a gorgeous spot to visit. Surrounded by mountains, the air is pure and the people are friendly. There are great restaurants, gardens, Banff National Park and every type of activity embracing the outdoors.
One of the recommendations we were given by locals was to drive up Tunnel Mountain to the Hoodoos, which we did.
Hoodoos are composed sedimentary rock covered by harder rock that is harder to erode. Once softer sediment erodes rock needle, or tower like natural obstacles are left. The Hoodoos are awesome to see as are the views from this elevation.
Keep watching for more on my Travels in Canada….more to come on Banff, Jasper, Canmore featuring the beauty of Alberta.

Impressive rock formations! Beautiful lakes! Wild flowers! Nice trip!
Thank you, it sure is something to see. The pictures don’t fully do the Hoodoos justice – they are huge!
I can imagine!
