Banff, Alberta

Take in the View at the Mount Norquay Green Spot

Originally added by Will Cebron

Spectacular views of the Bow River, downtown Banff and the iconic Mt. Rundle

The "Green Spot" is a beautiful grassy slope that opens up to sweeping views of downtown Banff and the surrounding area.  It's a great spot for photography, especially capturing the peak of Mt. Rundle.  There's also a set of chairs conveniently placed on the slope so you can kick back and enjoy the sunset.

Getting there from downtown Banff is easy.  You'll head north up Mt. Norquay Road passing The Juniper Hotel on your left.   After a few switchbacks, you'll reach a stone retaining wall.  This is where you'll pull over to park and walk out onto the grass.  If you're lucky, you might be sharing the grass with a herd of bighorn sheep that frequent the area.  

After you've enjoyed the view, head down to The Juniper Hotel for drinks on the deck.
