A virtual trip home to Banff

Here’s the result of a virtual paintout on Google Streetview. For a change, I carried it out without waiting for direction from The Virtual Paintout blog upon which I’ve been traveling around the world for three years now.  

And this time I knew all the best places to look, finally settling on this view, the fairly famous shot straight up Banff Avenue to Mt.Cascade combined with the view of the Banff Park Museum that you see if you turn the Google camera slightly to the left. This building, a National Historic Site, is designed in the ‘railway pagoda’ style favoured for rail station construction in the early twentieth century.
