Lake Louise in Banff National Park, Calgary

Let pictures speak for themselves.

Lake Louise, fed mainly by the Victoria glaciers. Lake Louise - JEWEL of the Rockies.

The glaciers are retreating continuously. They may all disappear one day.
So, make sure you see one in your lifetime.

Indeed a jewel. Turquoise lake, calm and captivating.

As time is short, we decided not to do a road trip this time. We joined a sightseeing tour instead. Driving is usually preferred since free and easy, we could stop by any vista point and walk around where we want to, when we want to. However, decided that usually the driver will be the one NOT enjoying since HE needs to drive and concentrate (so cannot enjoy the scenery along the way), and HE who drives long distances will typically tire out. To take the responsibility off ourselves, we put the responsibility on the tour bus driver-cum-tour-guide. :p
