it was too cloudy and windy that day that we had doubts of going for the gondola ride. at the end, i decided that since we were there already, we might as well go for it. although we really didn't have a great view on top, it was fine. we just got coffee and spend a good hour resting, talking and figuring out what else we can do for the rest of the day.
fortunately, there was a way for us to get there using a vehicle so that's what we opted for. we got to a closer view of the bow falls and it was quite a wonderful site to see. we also got a view of the majestic fairmont hotel when we were there.
after going down the gondola ride, we saw that there's this lake nearby that we can hang out before heading back to canmore. we weren't hungry for dinner yet so we tried locating lake vermillion to catch the sunset.
before it got dark, we headed back to our lodging and went to a nearby restaurant for our thanksgiving dinner (which im saving for another post). all in all, another well spent day in banff. i apologize if the whole post is so image heavy, but it's really nice to look back at these photos, especially now that im back in 'normal' work mode. teehee!
