A Second Trip to Lake Louise

The day before we left Alberta, Sharon was finished before 1:00 and true to our word, we were on the road by 1 heading back to the beautiful Rocky Mountains! We needed one last fix before heading home.

Believe it or not, the sky was sunny and clear and we didn't have a single drop of rain! Yeah!!!

Our first stop was back in Banff to do a little more shopping and also an ice cream treat! Guess what...you can get PEI's famous Cows Ice Cream in Banff! Yummm! We sat in the sun on a bench, enjoying our last day of the mountains while slowly devouring a chocolate nut waffle cone filled with yummy ice cream. I can't remember what flavour Sharon had but mine was chocolate with peanut butter cups and skore bars in it. Mmmmmm...my mouth is watering just writing about it! (I guess after the last couple of posts the secret is out. I am a huge fan of ice cream!!!)

We'd finished our shopping by about 4:00 and decided it would be worth the drive to Lake Louise for one more visit. Once again we took the Beau Valley Parkway but because it was earlier in the day we didn't see any elk grazing at the side of the road. But, here's a little clip from the week before's visit. Do you think we were the recommended 3 bus lengths away? Oops!

Here are a few more of my favourite pics from the day.

Because it was earlier in the day during our 2nd visit, the sun was still shining on the water. What a beautiful colour!

I love the tranquil look of this picture with the canoe drifting in it. Canoeing would have been fun but you sure don't want to tip into this chilly, glacier fed lake!
