Today we are on our way to Lake Louise. The weather is yucky,
rainy and cool.
As you can see, the ceiling is pretty low. The forecast for today
is for clearing skies later on the day.
We take the Bow Valley Parkway to get to Lake Louise. We could
have taken highway 1, faster, but not as scenic.
The sky is clearing up.
Jérémy was supposed to bike today, but as he said, he did not want to
freeze his brain. He is driving his car. Marilyne is with
him. They had a good time. More fun to hang out with him
than old farts like us!
Once in Lake Louise, we drive right away to our campground and get our
site. Big site, but ordinary. We took some very nice photos
here. We are visiting a lot, so we spend very little time at the
The Bow River.
We spent some time in the village of Lake Louise. Did some
laundry and visited the great information center.
We have to make a choice, with the weather we have right now, foggy and
light rain, are we going to Lake Louise or Moraine Lake?
Marilyne had a chat with a lady at the information center. The lady
said not to miss
Off to Moraine lake we go. She was right, it is very beautiful
and not to be missed.

If you remember the view, it is because it was on the back of the old
Let's start with photos of us. We look like Paparazzi and movie
Lots of photos, once again I could not decide which one to pick.
The place takes your breath away.
Once at the end of the trail and the end of the lake, the view is not
as pretty because the clouds are coming back.
Of course, we had to stop at the souvenir shop, the ladies love those
After Moraine Lake, we head to Lake Louise. The clouds are still
with us, including a light rain. We visit the hotel.
Some more huge geodes. Marilyne loves them. Too expensive
for our wallets.
If you were to compare Lake Louise from our trip in 2007 to this year,
you would see a big difference.
We are at the mercy of mother nature, still very pretty.

We end the evening with some games.
Time to go to bed. Estelle and Robert on the left, Marilyne on
