Banff National Park is the oldest national park in Canada, first established in 1885. It has an area of 2,564 sq. mi., or 6,641 sq. km. It is located in SW Alberta, near the border with British Colombia, in the Canadian Rockies. It is a dramatic landscape of glacier-cut mountains, hot springs, glaciers, and lakes.



Banff is unique among national parks in Canada by actually having an incorporated town within its' borders, a town of the same name with a population of about 7600. It serves as a hub for the tourist activities at the park, including golf courses, skiing, hiking, and enjoying the hot springs. It is also one of the most visited parks in Canada, with annual visits approaching 4 million.

A popular tourist attraction is the Banff Gondola, which takes from the town to the top of Sulphur mountain, where at an elevation of 7484 feet, offers a grand view of Banff. There is a couple of cams at the top of Sulphur Mt., one of which I'm pleased to highlight this week!

Hi everybody! Do you get tired of those "____ of the year" lists? Well, here's another one to irritate you, lol! I'm asking everybody to chose their five favorite cams out of all that have been on this blog this year! Below is a thumbnail of every cam that's been on the blog this year that's still online at this moment! Click on the name above the thumbnail for the full sized image!

My apologies to everyone that has a slow internet connection, as I didn't know of any other way of doing this.

Just choose your five favorites, and number them in order of preference. You can post your choices on the blog, or Wumail me your choices if you don't want anyone to know.

I'll take all your selections, and assign points thus:
1st- 7 pts. 2nd- 5 pts. 3rd- 3 pts. 4th- 2 pts. 5th- 1 pt.

After a week or so, I'll add up the points, and on the next blog, post the top ten cams of 2012!
