Lake Louise, Banff

So let me be honest. I went to Banff for two things, Lake Louise and Moraine Lake. And if I had only seen those two, I would have been satisfied. Mostly 😜

My husband and I were fortunate enough to be able to stay at the Fairmont Chateau. Our room had a view of the lake which made sitting in the room when we were tired so much more pleasant.


Though the water was not yet at its bluest, it was perfect. I’ve read that by the end of July it will be a deeper blue. But for me, it looked like a tropical drink. It looked deliciously unreal. 

​​The first couple of days, it was windy and chilly. Well at least by our standards it was. And I worried about what it would be like on our last morning. Our plan was to go for a sunrise canoe. Coming from extremely hot weather I simply wasn’t sure if I’d be warm enough. I also worried that we wouldn’t be able to move very far in the canoe since I hadn’t been in one since the 5th grade. Fortunately, it was actually warmer on that day, even at 5:30am. And it turned out that I can in fact move more than two feet in a canoe.

So what was it like?


I truly believe the photo says it all. While so many are looking for the perfect selfie, I wonder if they truly take a moment to simply take it all in. The above photo was taken by my husband without my knowledge.

And what was it like maneuvering our way through the water?


Perhaps it could have been included in a movie like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Unreal!

And as beautiful as it was, there is so much more.
