Canmore: a winter wonderland

Part 1: Christmas in Calgary

After a week in Calgary we drove 100 km to Canmore, an authentic mountain community, nestling in the Rockies.

What a beautiful place it was.  The weather was still amazing. Cold, but clear blue skies.

Can you imagine a more beautiful place to stay

One morning we walked down into Canmore from our accommodation. The path wound through woods and housing until we came once again to the Bow River.

Canmore itself is a wonderful small town, but with everything you could want: restaurants, bars, dollar shops, supermarket, ski and skate hire shops. . . .

We ate a few excellent meals here – the steak was to die for and really cheap and the curry was certainly up to scratch.

  1. We visited New England a few years ago, I was in awe of the small towns which catered for every need, something ours have lost. I guess if you live out in the wilds with proper winter weather you rely on your local shops.

  2. Somehow I missed your Christmas Post Annette and see from the comments you were there to visit your family, that must of been a very special trip. The scenery is stunning too!
