Took a quick trip up to Lake Louise in Banff National Park last month. It's not too far from Calgary and a great place to go just to enjoy the scenery both there and on the way. 1. This is Castle Mountain between Banff and Lake Louise. 2. The walk from the parking lot up to the lake 3. The view looking along the lake toward the glacier 4. This is where you can rent canoes 5. Close-up of the glacier 6. The hotel on the lake 7. Inside the hotel, a great spot for a drink 8. The view out the window - I love it. It doesn't get much better. 9. Some flowers outside the hotel. I loved the colours.
