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.
More canoe shots in the next post!
