A Lake Called Louise

Visiting the twin in Calgary. Day trip to Lake Louise, Banff. Breathtaking scenery. Endless blues and greens. Thank god for the sunny day otherwise the colours would have been mute. Vast stretches of pine forests that make you wonder about the life within them. Cloudy aqua coloured water. Temptation to dive in but no-one is swimming. Kayakers dwarfed by huge mountains. The clouds seem painted on. Fairmont Chateau stands majestic and proud. A place which rivals NZ in natural beauty. I could wake to that view forever if the tourists weren’t there.
