Thread subject: Lake Louise.
Name Date Message
Marie 10/21/04 09:47 pm Lake Louise is one of those incredibly beautiful places nestled deep in the Rocky Mountains. It is about one and a half hours drive from Calgary, Alberta. So it really isn't in BC, however it is very close to the border though...smile. I was there recently when I went to see my daughter in Calgary. It was one of those late September fall days, 20 degrees and brilliantly sunny when I arrived. Not a cloud in the sky and no wind whistling down the valley between the high peaks. The lake was a beautiful azure colour and still as a mill pond. It truly is a magical place in any season but even more so when winter's snows cover the lake and all has become a ' winter wonderland '. In February they host an ice festival where elaborate ice sculptures grace the lawns of the Chateau, albeit frozen beneath a lush carpet of snow. Amazing works of art. The temperature in winter is COLD. Way below freezing. Thick coats, hats, gloves and mittens are a must. The Chateau, at the far end of the lake( behind me as the photographer) is a great place to stay and have lunch. Pricey, but worth it! Don't visit in July and August as it is too touristy. Several birds have become 'people friendly', so they do not scatter when approached. Gray Jays and Clark's Nutcracker can be seen frequently begging for scraps from people's lunches and snacks. Not a good thing, but one at least has a chance to be 'up close and personal' to these feathered friends. I have even held a Gray Jay on the palm of my hand . They are as light as a feather. Neat to hold a wild creature even if it is only for 10 secs. When I visit this special place in the mountains I sense a real Spiritual quality about it. I am sure GOD lives there some of the time... ;-)) I hope you might get a chance to see it one day.
