Sentinel Pass (revisited)

My family came in to Banff for the night from Winnipeg, Calgary and Victoria, and we took the opportunity to revisit what is possibly my favourite hike in the Rockies. Sentinel Pass is sure to wow anyone who has not spent a load of time in the mountains, and even tends to wow those that have. After surmounting the pass, we enjoyed a lovely glissade down steep snow slopes on our way back to Minestimma Lakes below.
