Braving It

Kim and I went to Lake Louise.  What a view.  But we lasted no more than 5 minutes.  Seriously.  It was so cold.  We took in the view and then bolted for the car.

When we got back to town in had warmed up from -42F in the morning and -30 at Lake Louise to a balmy -18F.  Kim wanted coffee so I decided to do another hike.  This time up Tunnel Mountain which sits in the center of Banff and offers great panoramic views of town and the surrounding mountains and valleys.

Again, I hustled to stay warm, but didn’t jog like yesterday because I didn’t want to sweat and get cold.  It took an hour round trip and was well worth it.  I was rewarded with some cappuccino and cookies hanging with prego mago in a local coffee joint.
