Banff National Park, Alberta: Sulpher Mountain
Welcome to the top of Sulpher Mountain, overlooking beautiful Banff in the Canadian Rockies. This is another pretty gondola ride to the top of the 8,000-foot mountain, giving some impressive views of the countryside.
Banff is a slightly curious if beautiful place. It's in a national park, but it's quite a developed town in some ways. While real estate is leased instead of purchased, the area sure doesn't feel like a national park. But you can see why people would want to live there.
And watch out for mountain goats when you are driving around.
