So this is going to be a quick entry for last Saturday’s hike :). Robbie’s cousin was in town and we were thinking about a good hike on which we could take her. The tea houses in Lake Louise are always a great option- scenic views; not too strenuous; forests, waterfalls, and glaciers; and snacks at the tea houses themselves (which we didn’t do). I’ve hiked them fairly recently (last August for the Banff Challenge), but it’s always a nice one to repeat. The plan: hike to the Lake Agnes Tea House to have lunch, then take the Highline Trail to the Plain of Six Glaciers Tea House, and then head back to the car. In the end, Nora loved it! At parts, I believe it reminded her of The Lord of the Rings. I can see why :). Our long day culminated with a sushi-gorging dinner. Best. Ever.
Start: 12:30 pm
End: 5:40 pm (with two 20 minute breaks at each of the tea houses)
Distance: 15.6 km loop
