    Castle to Chateau

    September 5, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 4 °C

    What a way to spend a Birthday, waking up in a Castle - the beautiful Banff Springs. We start the morning leisurely making our way from Banff to Lake Moraine. But not before everyone on the tour song happy Birthday 🥳.

    The surroundings are beautiful at the Lake so we sit and just take it all in. A few people are in canoes but we just sit on the bank in complete awe of Mother Nature - GORGEOUS

    Back on the coach and we head into the village of Bow River - and no, Ian Moss is not there singing.
    We take the time to get some lunch and wander through the handful of shops.

    Back on the coach and it’s the long 8 minute drive to Lake Louise. Beautiful surroundings and the Chateau is very grand. Standing in the foyer we see the lake through the window - WOW 😲

    We head outside and sit in the gardens to take it all in. Photos will never do justice to the magnificent place.

    Dinner is booked in the Fairview restaurant..... but before we’re able to relax and think about dinner we’re told there’s something organised for the Birthday girl.

    Executive Chef Jean-Francois gave mum (and Lachlan & I) the tour of his kitchens & banquet rooms. What a massive operation. Anywhere between 5,000 & 10,000 covers per day, plus 700 staff - now that’s a lot of mouths to feed.
    It’s an old Chateau which has fabulous old world charm. Magnificent

    What a day so far.... making memories.

    Lake Louise der Zweite Tag

    March 8 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ -5 °C

    Heute hat sich der See von seiner besten Seite gezeigt, etwas frischer Schnee über Nacht und viel Sonnenschein am Tag. Der perfekte Mix für eine tolle Winterwanderung zum Lake Agnes. Nach einer dreistündigen Wanderung ging es noch zum Eislaufen auf den See. Morgen geht es weiter nach Banff, wo wir zwei Tage verbringen werden.Read more

    Einfach großartig😍 Kanada, wie aus dem Bilderbuch und ihr mittendrin!!! Danke, dass wir ein kleines bisschen dabei sein dürfen! Ich wünsche euch weiterhin eine gute Reise und noch viele unvergessliche Momente! Viele Grüße aus der fernen Heimat! [Carola Söhnel]

    Lake Louise, Banff

    July 13, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    First stopp in Banff Nationalpark: the famous Lake Louise. We started towards Lake Louise at 7 am. Early to get a good view without too many tourists. After a little trouble getting to the lake by shuttle, we finally made it! And we can tell you - all the trouble was worth it! 🤩 We have never seen a lake colored like this. Such a deep turquoise water and in addition set in the middle of mountains and nature. We were in love! Absolutely breathtakingly beautiful ♥️
    We get why so many people come here!

    Erster Stopp im Banff Nationalpark: der berühmte Lake Louise.
    Um 7 Uhr ging es für uns in Richtung Lake Louise. Besonders früh, um eine gute Sicht, ohne zu viele Touristen zu bekommen. Nach ein wenig Mühe mit dem Shuttlebus zum See zu gelangen, hatten wir es endlich geschafft!
    Und wir können Ihnen sagen: der ganze Aufwand hat sich gelohnt! 🤩 Wir haben noch nie einen so krass gefärbten See gesehen. So ein tiefes türkisfarbenes Wasser und dazu inmitten von Bergen und Natur. Wir waren verliebt! Absolut atemberaubend schön ♥ ️
    Wir können verstehen, warum so viele Leute hierher kommen!

    Ein Satz mit X das war wohl nix

    March 9 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ -14 °C

    „Morgen früh gehen wir es an!“ sagten wir gestern, als wir planten, die Berge in besonders tollem Licht zusehen und den Lake Louise mal ganz für uns alleine zu haben. Gesagt, getan. Unser Wecker klingelte 6.40 Uhr, denn 7.11 Uhr war der Sonnenaufgang angesagt. Wir kochten uns Tee, zogen uns warm an und waren bestens vorbereitet für die Bergseeidylle in Morgenstimmung. Wir gingen zum Auto. Dieses war bei -17 Grad natürlich gefroren und der Eiskratzer unseres Mietwagens konnte, im besten Fall, noch zur Abwehr bei einen Bärenangriff nützlich sein. Nach 5 Minuten mit laufenden Motor, ging es im halben Blindflug zum 4 km entfernten See. Mit unserer Ankunft auf dem Parkplatz, begannen sich die ersten Gipfel in einen wunderschönen orangenen Licht zu färben. Wir schnappten unsere Thermoskanne, unsere Pappbecher und die Teebeutel und gingen im schnellen Schritt zum See. Wahnsinn, wir ganz allein. Wir setzten uns auf die Bank mit Blick auf den einsamen See. Beim Hinsetzen auf die Bank, kam plötzlich die Eispoliermaschine um die Ecke gefahren. Verena und ich schauten uns an und sagten nur „Das kann doch jetzt nicht wahr sein.“ Wir machten uns Tee, saßen bei -17 Grad da, mit Blick auf den See, den wunderschönen Bergen und die Eispoliermaschine kreiste vor uns, von links nach rechts. Wir konnten nur noch lachen. 😂🤣😂. Das verstehen Kanadier unter Bergseeidylle.Read more

    Lake Louise

    March 7 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 0 °C

    Angekommen, am wohl berühmtesten See Kanadas. Wie es zu erwarten war, war der See natürlich noch komplett gefroren. So entschieden wir uns spontan für eine Wanderung mitten auf dem See, eine Seeüberquerung sozusagen. Direkt auf dem See kam ich auf die Idee Schneetreten zu machen. Schuhe und Socken aus und los gehts. Nach vier, fünf Schritten war ich dann aber doch froh schnell die Schuhe wieder anzuziehen. Aber ich kann sagen „Hey ich habe einmal auf dem Lake Louise Schneetreten gemacht🤣“. Ein schöner Tag mit vielen Eindrücken geht zu Ende.Read more

    Birthday Dinner

    September 5, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    What would a Birthday be without a dinner to remember.
    Lachlan suited up and escorted his Grandma to dinner. We were seated close to the window facing the Lake. Very little conversation initially as we were too busy staring at the view (after the sun moved).

    Food was lovely & a nice bottle of wine to match.

    Birthday cake went missing but we’re assured it will be delivered in the morning.
    Cake for breakfast anyone???

    More memories to treasure.

    Lake Louise - Day 2

    June 3, 2019 in Canada ⋅ 🌬 10 °C

    Wow wow wow 😮
    This is one of the most beautiful places we’ve both ever been to!

    The first part of the way led us up to the “Little Beehive” where we had the most incredible view on Lake Louise and Mirror Lake.
    Our next stop was Lake Agnes which was nearly completely frozen (in June!). After a short break at the super cute Tea House, we made our way back down to the lake shore.

    In total we walked 17,9 km and 133 floors that day and luckily didn’t meet a grizzly in the way.

    The jewels, Lake Louise and Moraine Lake

    August 25, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 36 °F

    Early, early, early....set the alarm for 5 because we all wanted to leave by 6 a.m. for Lake Louise. You hear all these stories about how difficult it is to get parking so we wanted to be early!

    Based on the discussions we'r had regarding the shuttle options we left K & S camper in the village, and took our RV up to the lake, only about 4 or 5 miles up the road. Got there about 6:30 or so, and had LOTS of parking options. Settled into a spot and got some coffee going.

    About 7:30 we left Auggie in the RV and headed to the shuttle location to secure tickets for a midday ride to Moraine lake. Moraine lake parking is so tight, if you aren't there before 6 a.m you aren't allowed to drive in. They actually close the road to all incoming cars and only allow the shuttle buses.

    After getting tickets we walked over to the lake. That first look is so stunning. You look down this turquoise lake to see these tall, rocky, mountain peaks, and a glacier hanging at the end of the lake. And in the morning, with little wind, it is all reflected in the lake surface. Really glad we got there when we did, because the edge of the lake fills up fast with a lot of tourists which makes picture taking a challenge. We just enjoyed the view and then spent sometime walking g t.he grounds of the hotel AMD eventually making or way into the hotel, actually the correct word is chateau, the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. Elegant, with the oldest part being built (I think) in the 1920s. This replaced the very original Chateau, which was a small rustic wood building. To qualify as "restaurant" guests we went in and had some coffee with requisite pastry and po purchased some sandwiches for later in the day.

    Back outside for first hike of the day, the Fairview overlook. Overlook always means "uphill" and this was all that. Uphill for maybe half a mile or so to a wooden platform that provided a great view if the lake and the Chateau. Just beautiful, red canoes on the lake, beautiful blue sky with clouds, Chateau planted at the foot of the lake....you really appreciate why this is a destination spot. I can't even imagine what a room costs here!

    After walking Auggie a bit, we all met the noon shuttle for Moraine Lake, about a 20 minute drive. Hopped off the bus and after checking in with a ranger headed "uphill" to get an overlook of this lake. It really was just a short hike up a large rockpile that gave us a breathtaking view of this stunning lake. The color was almost radiant, translucent, jewel like blue, again surrounded by rocky peaks, glacier, and streams. Wow, we sat in the sun (yes!), soaking in the view, the warmth and eating our sandwiches. Lots of picture taking!

    We split up again, K & S opting for a longer uphill hike, and Tom and I taking the flatter lakeshore trail. With all the various mountain peaks, the views changed all along the lakeshore. And with fluctuating clouds and sun, the lighting varied as well. I kept taking pictures thinking that the light was much better than the last shot! But they are all gorgeous pictures, you can't take a bad one st this lake!

    Caught our 4 pm shuttle to K &S dropped at the village to get their camper, and Tom and I back to Lake Louise to get the RV. We walked out for one last look at the lake, not sure if we would see it again, I hope so!! And as we drove away- a rainbow!

    Had about an hour drive to Banff Campground. It was interesting to see that this park had a number of animal under and over passes to minimize the accidents cause by the wildlife. I assume it makes a difference, very creative!

    What an awesome day! Thank you God for this blessing!
