A couple of weeks ago, we made a day trip to Banff and Cochrane. Banff is about an hour drive from Calgary, not much of a trek. (Mind you, right now it would be bad — there’s quite a storm in the mountains at the moment.) The trip to Banff was more of a sightseeing trip, rather than a big hiking adventure or anything. Just a scouting mission for now, I think I got Sheena hooked. Here’s the album of our little trip.
Cochrane is along the way, only about 35 minutes from downtown Calgary, but very much a good ‘ol prairie town. We drove around for a bit, just checking out the sights. If we decide to move out of the city, it will probably be to the Cochrane area. It’s such a nice spot, nestled around the Bow River, close to Calgary, yet with a population of only 12,000 or so. Sheena could certainly have her ranchland in the area and I could bust it down the highway to work.
