Banff & Kripalu

It had been a few years, but we finally made it to another showing of the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour. One of these years, we will actually get to Banff, but for now, we will have to settle for the traveling tour. We had a conflict with the Connecticut dates, so we went to Lenox, Massachusetts to see the show at the high school. The event was hosted by the Arcadian Shop for the 20th year in a row.

We saw some friends at the showing, which wasn’t unexpected, considering we are members of the Western Massachusetts Athletic Club, and do a lot of trail running in the Berkshires. All of the films were good, but this year, I was particular impressed with the mountain bike film, Strength In Numbers, produced by Anthill Films. My favorite part of the film was the segment about the Aptos, California “Post Office Jumps.” It is very cool.

Our kids really enjoyed the films, though it was a late night for them. We changed them into their pajamas at intermission, which was a good strategy. Prior to the show, we had dinner at Kripalu, which was fantastic. I hadn’t been there in a while, though Debbie spent a weekend their last month. She spent a month there more than a decade ago, and is a Kripalu Certified Yoga Teacher. I remember visiting her in 2000 when she got certified. It was a very different place back┬áthen. The yoga boom has led to the transformation of Kripalu in a serious way.

The cafeteria is as good as ever, and the vegan options are awesome. The place has a great vibe. I could have sat there all night sipping a cup of tea, but Banff was the main event. I can’t wait to get back.

The Cubs built telegraphs and practiced sending S.O.S. signals. #cubscouts 12-18 year old juniors start the #FatTire Classic at #WindingTrails #mtb #MountainBike #root66 I used to love visiting this old #Hartford National Bank branch when I was a kid. The old vault is one of my favorites. What a great mechanism. The bolts are stout, like the ones made at #horstengineering Thanks to online banking, I hadn't been here in years. @horsteng #horstengineering sent a Combo Pack of #HorstSpikes to @mvatrack for their auction fundraiser last night. #cyclocross + #velodrome = #bicycle fun! #marymoor Cool down run back to @horsteng after climbing the stairs to the top of City Place, the tallest building on the #Hartford skyline for @lungassociation #fightforairclimb fundraiser. I checked out #RiversidePark and the spring flooding. The future @usacycling  #cyclocross National Championships course is under water now so let's hope for a dry January 2017. Nice of the railroad to replace the rickety old wood walkway with a safer metal version. #horstengineering 34 Floors to the top of City Place.
