The third morning – a tough morning – we had to leave the hotel at 9am to make our way to the Gondola that takes us up to the Sulphur Mountain on 2,281 meters. From there you had a beautiful view once the clouds cleared. Some of us made jumping pictures that turned out really awesome. After spending some time up in the air we had to take the Gondola down again and drove back to Banff to meet up with the ones who did not join the Gondola trip. In Banff we had another 2 hours free time to stroll along the river and to get some food for the drive to Golden.
Our first stop after leaving Banff was Lake Louise. Since we had some trainees from Westtrek on the bus Lee told them that they have to swim in the lake. Of course some of our crazy INTERNeX members heard this and joined them, Crazy Alex and Anders. So once arrived at the lake they stripped down to their swim clothes and took a refreshing bath in the still half frozen Lake Louise. I think they set the bar very high for a next crazy Rockies Trip.
Back in the bus we gave them a big cheers and made our way down to Emerald Lake. The Emerald Lake is frozen most of the year from November to June due to the high attitude. At the lake we all took a moment for our selves to embrace the nature and to relax for a moment. After everyone had some quite time for themselves we went back in the bus and drove to Golden for our last overnight.
Arrived in Golden we went straight into the hot tub and guess what…they had a waterslide as well, so much fun! After playing around like children in the swimming pool it was time to get our burgers and drinks for the campfire nights with music and stories.

The highlight of this day was definitely Crazy Alex and Anders going for a swim in Lake Louise, what about you?
