Even on an overcast day, it’s hard to describe Lake Louise as anything but breathtaking. Located within Banff National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), the turquoise lake dramatically offsets Victoria Glacier, and no matter how many photos you have seen of it, there’s nothing like walking the path or sitting awhile to let it soak in. (I am not the one doing the yoga pose, but I understood her need of it.) The fabulous Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise Hotel overlooks the lake, but for me it couldn’t compete with this natural beauty.
Our animal friends continued to contribute to our enjoyment along the way.
