Lake Louise, Banff

Well, Lake Louise is beautiful. No denying that.

And we FINALLY got our canoe ride in.

We were some of the first ones out on the water that morning. And though these photographs may seem calm and peaceful, our actual experience at Lake Louise was far from that.

Carefully cropped out of each photo are the hoards of tourists, bustling about, snapping photo after photo, piercing the calm air with excited conversation.

It was our last day of the Canadian portion of our trip. And Jordan and I couldn’t help but just chuckle to ourselves a bit. Our expectations of this place were pretty different from what we actually experienced. The photographs we had seen of this place were stunning, and while Lake Louise is an incredible sight to see, it isn’t quite the peaceful oasis we had imagined.

Nonetheless, it was good for a nice hike around the lake, and one to check off the bucket list!

Until next time, Canada. You were great!

    This reminds me of a lake in an abandoned quarry which was such a similar beautiful blue. I’m not the biggest fan of people in my nature and beauty places either, but these are lovely lovely photographs :)

    I’d love for you to share an un-cropped version, Sarah – these images are stunning, and do wonders of capturing the scenery and it’s beauty, but I’m intrigued to see the ‘real’, too…the hustle and bustle you mention. I think it’d be fascinating!
