On to Lake Louise
We drove to Lake Louise. We were expecting turquoise water, warm temperatures and a idyllic summer mountain setting. Because of the change in elevation, we got snow and ice, saw a avalanche, difficult hiking, but it was still so beautiful. We felt lucky to experience the lake with very few others.
the beginning of the Avalanche
During our hike around the lake, we were constantly warned about avalanches. All of a sudden we hear a loud noise, almost like gun fire and looked across the lake to see the avalanche starting. It was incredible to see the power of this.
The hiking was a challenge, as we trudged through the snow and ice, but it was beautiful out and were in awe of the beauty of this area.
