L - Lake Louise
Posted On 09/22/2017 16:29:13 by yourchoice

There are times when we discover, through the eyes of visitors, that we live almost “next door” to one of the world’s treasures of nature, Banff National Park. We have extended family members living in England who have visited several times, both summer and winter, and a ‘must see’ location is Lake Louise.

Lake Louise is at the foot of a glacier, and in the summer, the scene from the chateau on the edge of the lake is spectacular. There are hiking trails around the lake, a chance to view some bears when you ride the gondola, some Adirondack chairs on the front lawn, and shopping areas in the Chateau. A village has been developed near the late with many condos, making this a destination vacation location.

When our visitors come from England, they prefer to come in the winter so they can enjoy snow related activities. They rent a condo in the mountains and drive to our home for visits and a home cooked meal, or we drive to their location and join them in some activity that we can watch. At Lake Louise, they can ice skate on the lake, enjoy ice carving events, take a ride in a horse drawn sleigh, and enjoy a great lunch by windows overlooking the lake

We live about 80 miles from the lake, and never think of taking the drive there on a sunny day. It’s sort of a “been there, done that” attitude. Shame on us!

These photos and the story have brought back fond memories for me... For over 35 years I was corresponding with a lady who lived in Saskatchewan. We first began our friendship when we were in our 20's and at that time we both had daughters of the same age.  We were what was known back then 'Penpals' ....Occasionally we would phone each other or send voice tapes. Of course when Computers came upon the scene we then sent email's which was wonderful for rather than the 3 weeks it took to send and receive mail we emailed almost daily.  Sadly both Irene and her daughter have passed away  and I  often think about them....Why your Blog brought back memories is that each summer the family would spend 3 weeks holiday at Banff National Park and Irene would send me photographs of the area and describe places they visited, the shops and all places of interested.  They loved Banff so much and just looking at the photos I can understand why.
