Today’s post will be short and sweet. After spending a glorious 3 days at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, we boarded a Brewster Travel Canada bus and headed to Lake Louise. The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is quite something, with Lake Louise, Mount Victoria and the Victoria Glacier as its backdrop. The glacial blue-ness of Lake Louise always amazes me when I see it :).

The main included activity for the day was the Voyageur Canoe Experience, where we spent a lovely hour or so canoeing along the shores of Lake Louise. It was a fairly relaxing and calm day. But it was all in preparation for tomorrow when we take on the ultimate scramble: Mount Temple. As we drove from Banff to Lake Louise, we could see Mount Temple in the distance, completely covered in snow, and towering above many of the other peaks in the area. Daunting? A bit. Conquerable? Absolutely. You taunt me, Mount Temple. Challenge Accepted.

Oh, and here are some random photos of the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. It’s quite the hotel!
