Cascade Mountain - August 12, 2007

After our Bankhead excursion, D and I wanted to check out a trail that passed along the edge of the airstrip beside the Trans-Canada highway and continued to Cascade Mountain. It turned out to lead to the bottom of the waterfall that is seen running down Cascade Mountain most of the year, and despite being a short (but very steep) climb... it was ultimately pretty anti-climatic:

The best part of the stop? Thanks to the steepness of the trail, the 10-15 minute walk actually gave us an excellent view of the valley outside Banff, looking north-eastward:

And finally, because I always love the look of it, Mt. Rundle from the airstrip:

Ah, the joys of a park pass. ;-)
