Lake Louise, The Mountains.

As we walked around Lake Louise, there were majestic views of the surrounding mountains offset by the startling blue-green of the lake itself. Perhaps because it was a cloudy day, I was more aware of the danger and oppressiveness of the mountains. At the base of the mountain in all three of these first photos, you can see the results of a landslide, which must have created an immense wave as it fell into the lake below.

The photo below was taken when 3/4 of the way around the lake, looking up towards the snow-covered mountains and the glacier at the head of the lake.

And finally, a shot from the hotel looking towards the not-yet-open-for-the-season canoe rental and mountains enclosed in snow clouds.

    Beautiful with the dusting of snow.

  3. The color of the water is stunning!
    I love that you had people in some of these images. The sense of scale is really made clear when seeing how small the people are compared to the mountains. So majestic and beautiful! I hope I’m able to cross this park off my bucket list one day.

    Until then I sure enjoyed the arm chair tour you shared this morning.

  4. Simply stunning! 😃

    All wild and rough, and then there is this crystal lake… So beautiful, challenging, and inspiring. Love our planet 🙂
