Below are a few more photos from the backpacking trip I recently took with friends. These photos are from Norman Creek at Sunset Pass in Banff National Park, Alberta. If you want a great destination in Banff that is little visited and that is a relatively short backpack, then Sunset Pass might be one to consider. The campground at Norman Creek is perfectly situated on the edge of an expanse of meadows with grand views to Mount Coleman, Mount Wilson and Mount Amery. In spite of the name Sunset pass is great at both sunrise and sunset. To learn more about this hike check out this detailed article by Samantha and see some of the shots she made of Sunset Pass with the Canon G11. Click on the photos to see larger versions. All images were shot with my Canon Rebel T2i and the Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 lens.
