Lake Louise and BanffAugust 28, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C
Lake Louise certainly lived up to expectation, it was stunningly beautiful. What I was not prepared for was the sheer volume of tourists there...wow. The Chateau was beautiful, and we had afternoon tea there... We did not take pics the first visit as the afternoon sun was not going to give us great shots, particularly with the smoke haze. We headed the 60 odd km to BANFF and our digs for the night.
We footed around this bustling tourist town for a while, and found a nice pub for dinner (poutine, among other things!). The next morning, we hot footed back to the lake, and the pictures were like a postcard... In my mind,this was a watercolour, simply beautiful. I can only imagine how more beautiful it must be in its winter spendour..
After a great nights sleep, and very ordinary "complimentary" breakfast, we left, heading for Jasper.Read more
