|The Three Sisters, Canmore|
Today, we made a quick trip to the Rocky Mountain town of Canmore. Canmore is just outside Banff National Park, and about 100 kilometres west of Calgary. The elevation of the town centre sits at 1309 metres (4296 Feet). The surrounding mountains reach heights of 2936 metres (9,633 feet).
We had a home there fifteen years ago. We've hiked and skied many of the trails over the years. We've stood on the highest point of a couple of the mountains, one of which was Ha Ling Peak, on the far right on the image below. My mum and dad, who introduced me to self-propelled sports and the need to spend time "outside", are buried there.
It's a very special place.
Being there today, "visiting" with my parents, brought peace.
