I headed out to Canmore, AB for a small trip to shoot an engagement session in the mountains!
Along the way, I stopped in Calgary for a night and ate dinner at a hot spot called Ten Foot Henry. I tried their Ginger Beer and my friend and I shared an assortment of tapas meals off the menu. Sooo Delicious!!!
The next day we continued west until we hit Canmore and we stopped for breakfast at a very cute bagel shop called Rocky Mountain Bagel Co.
I then met with the couple and we spent the entire day adventuring and photographing their engagement session!
The following day I was able to get a good share of hiking and sightseeing in. Starting the morning off with a smaller hike called Tunnel Mountain. Don’t underestimate the view of this shorter mountain. Once you catch site of the other side of the mountain, the scenery is absolutely stunning!
Afterwards, I made my way from the main streets of Banff to the starting point of Sulphur Mountain’s hike (which I did not realize was a strenuous hike uphill all on its own). Not going to lie, my legs were already starting to feel numb, but I had limited time in this region and I know there was much more that I wanted to see.
Once I arrived at the top of Sulphur Mountain, the view was breathtaking. Soo Worth it!!! You get a skyline view of a variety of mountain tops and a birds eye view of the city of Banff.
Rewarding myself, I sat down in Sky Bistro and had a martini (which I unfortunately can’t remember the name of). Either it was the best martini I’ve ever had or it was a beverage in general after all that hiking; regardless, what a delicious drink to celebrate a successful day! I finished it off by heading to Banff Hot Springs and just soaked the sore legs and took in some additional mountain air before bussing back to the hotel.
