(Some of) the Red Chairs of Banff National Park
In specially selected spots around several national parks, Parks Canada has installed pairs of red chairs to lure people out into these unique locations. Instantly taken with the concept we planned to scoot round and find as many as we could.
Chairs to ponder the reflections at Two Jack Lake. A good first find.
Happy red chair people.
Lake Minnewanka (remember, ‘wonka’) – pretty ho hum from this side…
…but pretty alright from this side.
There are 13 around Banff. It would’ve been nice to collect the set but we didn’t have long and seven would be our tally.
On the hoodoos viewing trail, racing to the chairs ahead of the sightseers behind us.
Bit of an awkward viewing spot but, y’know, still good.
Hello again Mt Rundle. Here on Tunnel Mountain Rd we first waited for a man to set up a tripod for his red chair selfie.
Perfect spot up on Mt Norquay Scenic Drive.
Red chairs in the woods at Mule Shoe Lake along the Bow Valley Parkway.
The sole offering for our collection from Yoho National Park was at Takakkaw Falls – where for something different the chairs are facing out.
The chairs left an impression (and vice versa probably) and now that we’re home we’re sourcing a couple for the deck where we can sit and enjoy the majesty and sweeping vistas of… the side of our house.
