Sundance Canyon – Banff National Park – Hiking Alberta

 

Sundance Canyon is an excellent bike and hike with a diverse range of features in Banff National Park.

 

 

Today the grandson's birthday will be celebrated with a drive west on the TransCanada Highway from Calgary, Alberta, Canada to the Cave and Basin near the Town of Banff in Banff National Park for a bicycle ride to Sundance Canyon followed by a short hike. 

It is a beautiful, sunny day.  The Bow River is a rich, incredible turquoise.
