Lake Louise

 
Lake Louise is probably one of the best recognized sights of Western Canada and the Rockies.  It is high on the list of places to visit for most tourists heading to Alberta.   

 
With its situation at the base of glacial peaks (yes, that it is a glacier in the background).  The sparkling blue waters have a magical effect on the visitor. 

 
Lake Louise is about 2.5 km in length and 90 metres deep.  Chateau Lake Louise, the famous hotel is located close to the lake, but not actually on the shore, as I had imagined. 
 
I didn't take too many photographs here as the place was swarming with tourists and I was trying to capture the beauty of nature, not lots of people obstructing the views!
