Until this trip, I had only a very limited exposure to Canada. But now that I have experienced the glory that is Lake Louise, I think I want to move here forever.
We started the drive from Calgary to Banff shortly after our customer meetings. Liz, my travel companion for this part of my trip, is Canadian and acted as a fantastic tour guide. She brought us up to Lake Louise in Banff.
Prepare yourselves. The following pictures might make you change citizenship.
That ethereal glow is not entirely camera generated. It really looked like some sort of fantasy land of fiction. We took a walk along the west side of the lake and as the sun fell behind the mountains, the hazy gloss over the landscape faded.
Lake Louise is a glacier lake. The water was eerily clear and had an amazingly beautiful color to it.
After ample walking and leisure time on the edge of the lake, we went inside a hotel that stood on the Lake’s north side, and sat down at a restaurant overlooking the glory. We had a platter of cheese and another of antipasto. We chatted and looked across what very well might be the most beautiful landscape I’ve ever seen.
Way to go Canada. I’m totally in love with you.
