What's a trip to Canada without a trip to Banff National Park, and a trek to Lake Louise? You can't tell in this black and white shot, but Lake Louise is a blue-green shade because of its high mineral deposits... Think copper, or the Statue of Liberty (same reason she's green; copper isn't always a nice pretty coppery color, folks!). This is shot from the path that goes around the entire lake, looking up into the mountains.
I hiked to 7250' that day, up to Little Beehive, and as only I manage to do, I did indeed fall up the mountain (and blew the everloving you know what out of my knee, but that's okay, I still completed the 10km/6.25mi hike).
It also hailed, rather a lot.
A national park, Lake Louise, and standing amidst the Canadian Rockies is something that can't help but touch you. It was an amazing experience for me, seeing the beautiful lake, hiking as far up as we could through tree and snow line, and enjoying tea at the Tea House on Lake Agnes. I hope you leave this photo with a hint of what it was like to stand on the lakeshore.
