We got back from the guided walk in Grotto Canyon about 12.30. It was still clear blue sky and bright sunshine and so, having had something to eat I decided to go back up Tunnel Mountain. The views had been dramatic on Saturday but my guess was that they would be more so in the sun. Much of the time I have been here it has been sunny but apparently that is unusual and so I didn’t want to defer going back up the mountain in case the next day-off from skiing was again overcast. I enjoy walking when it is snowing but it doesn’t make for good photos.
I thought that by the time I got to the top the valley floor would be in the shade but that the mountains would be in the sun and against a backcloth of blue sky. Which is as it turned out. So this blog is really just more photos of and from Tunnel Mountain.
Altogether the walk took about 3 hours but that included a fair bit of time just enjoying being on top of the mountain in the sunshine. I decided that if another day-off coincides with sunshine I would go up the mountain in the morning to catch the sun on the Bow River Valley. As it turns out, that may not be possible. About which in the next blog.
