Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Nov. 23, 2013: Sunset, Banff National Park, Alberta


(Sunset over Mt. Rundle and Canmore, Banff National Park) 


It's sweet to be in just the right place at just the right time!  


The Canadian Rockies are known for their beautiful rugged peaks, hanging glaciers, turquoise lakes and rivers, and thick pine-forested slopes.  You know they're beautiful but there are times when even they can surprise you!


On this particular day I was returning to Calgary after a long day-hike in Yoho National Park in Eastern British Columbia.  It had rained for about an hour during our drive home and I was not optimistic about seeing a sunset.  But a few minutes later the rain stopped, the clouds started to break apart and we were treated to a beautiful and memorable sunset just outside of Banff!  One of those moments you pull the car off the road for 10 minutes and just take it all in.
