Banff – Lower Bankhead

On our past visits to Banff, we have driven the quite lovely Minnewanka Loop past the lake of that name and Eamonn’s favourite, Two Jack Lake. The loop also takes you past the site of the former coal mining town, Bankhead, and we have always promised ourselves that on a future visit, we’d have a proper investigation of the remnants of the place. We finally did this on the way back from Kelowna (see next post down). As well as some pictures of the town as it is now, we took some shots of the supporting informational plaques…so we’ll let the pictures tell their own story. To read some of the plaques, you may have to click on the pictures to enlarge them.J&E
