So, naturally, when we were planning our Great Canadian Road Trip we added a stop at the lake.
The lake was named The Lake Of The Fishes by the Stoney Nakota First Nations people back in the day. It is a brilliant turquoise lake surrounded by towering mountains.
The day we arrived happened to be a civic holiday weekend, so the place was absolutely packed with damned dirty tourists. So we had to wade thru crowds to get to the shore line. When we did, we got the amazing view that has made Lake Louise famous.
When we got there we were standing at the base of one of the mountains that line the lake. Some rock climbers were living up to their name.
That proved to be a wonderful end to a great day of exploring the Rockies.
We are finally heading back east, but there are a few more stops to be made, including a pilgrimage to the beloved fictional Canadian town of Dog River, Saskatchewan.
Stay tuned - it is going to be an action packed visit to a place where there is not a lot going on. Trust me.
