Lake Louise :: Holy moly! This place was magical! It was seriously a winter wonderland, something straight out of a disney movie! Or The Revenant, which was partially filmed in the Rockies… but I will talk about that more in a future post because we actually went hiking in a spot that was in the movie. For now though, I want to focus on the little slice of heaven from our pics above, Lake Louise. During the winter everything is covered in beautiful white snow, but I hear (and see from the internet) that during the summer when the ice melts, this lake is the most breathtakingly beautiful blue color, and surrounded by the mountains… oh my!
Driving in on Wednesday night, you really couldn’t see a whole lot. It was actually quite scary seeing signs warning of Elk crossing, and BEARS!! The light from the full moon was only highlighting the tips of the mountains which surrounded us on both sides, but that was it, no other light source and really no towns or even gas stations in sight!
We stayed at the Fairmont Chateau (you can see it in the background of one of the pics above) and couldn’t have dreamed of a more wonderful hotel. Everything was superb, absolute perfection. I never wanted to leave! And the view from our room… just look at the first picture on this post.
I can’t wait to show you more from the trip, but with an almost ONE year old getting into everything, it’s going to take me some time, so hang in there and I will post them as soon as I can!
