Bow Summit & L LouiseJune 5 in Canada
Bright sunny start, if cool, at Deer Lodge so we decided to head back up the 93 to Bow Summit where the snow had wiped out the views the day before. On the way a bear jam result in mum and cub by the road. As we pulled away there was another just a few metres along.
The summit car park was busy and still snowed up in parts. The view point was busy but awesome, however we then went on to an upper view almost on our own and with spectacular view of L Peyto and surrounding mountains. The spring flowers were just appearing which added to the interest.
We set off back to L Louise where we went for a stroll alongside the turquoise lake with views of Mt Victoria before returning to the Chateau where we were booked for afternoon tea. Nathan looked after us very well as we celebrated our Ruby anniversary trip in style. The views of the lake, glacier and mountains changing by the minute as the sky cleared.
From there it was a short drive down the 1 to Banff where we checked in to our Lodge Suite - amazing and comfortable space right in the centre of things.Read more
