Throwback Thursday

It’s Throwback Thursday, so I thought I’d post a couple of shots taken at what I believe to be the top of Sulphur Mountain, via the gondola ride in Banff, Canada.

The black-and-white image was captured by Mom of Dad and my two sisters. I was either not yet born or still an infant because my oldest sister looks about the age when I was born. And if I was around, I know there was no way in hell Mom would have let me get that close to the edge.

The second image was taken about 6 or 7 years after the first, because my oldest sister was either in college or already married.I’m diggin’ those shoes we all wore. On the gals, not exactly hike-worthy, but ok for a walk from the gondola to the view area and back, I guess. Thinking about it now, I marvel at what a long way we’ve come in terms of outdoor/hiking gear.

It’s Trivia Tuesday 1-19-2021!

Rainbow Falls, Outside Of Stehekin, WA, in the Lake Chelan National Recreation Area

Did you know the North Cascades was so named after its numerous cascading waterfalls, including Rainbow Falls, pictured here, located within the Lake Chelan National Recreation Area portion of the North Cascades National Park Complex? This two-tiered waterfall is a total of 390 feet tall and is one of those must-sees whenever one visits the small community of Stehekin, located about 5 miles, give or take, from the waterfall.

You can learn more North Cascades trivia, and also test your North Cascades knowledge with the latest quiz and trivia piece I penned for the National Parks Traveler.
