As promised, I'm back today with some photos from our trip to the always beautiful Lake Louise. I found it interesting to visit during the winter, as opposed to the summer, because it was impossible to get the stereotypical photo of the lake with everyone walking on it. So, rather than capturing a photo where it looks totally untouched and serene, it looks over populated and touristy. Ah well, it was still gorgeous. I can honestly say, even with a hundred people around me, I could still appreciate the beauty of my surroundings.
Plus, the weather was awesome!! Do you see my outfit!? That's right, I'm wearing a sweater without a jacket!! This is exciting news, folks. Spring has officially kicked off in the mountains and I'm loving every sunshine-filled moment of it.
I adore this photo because it looks like the mountain is thinking something. It leaves me to wonder what that might be. Perhaps, "Life is good with your head in the clouds."
These last few photos were taken on the drive from Louise to Banff. Since it was Easter long weekend, both towns were insanely busy. Visiting Banff always makes me appreciate living in Jasper all the more. It's just so much busier in Banff than it is in Jasper. To be honest, I find it to be a bit much. You're constantly getting stuck behind slow walkers, all the stores are filled to the brim with tourists and there is never an empty parking space. Jasper can be pretty crazy in the summer, as well, but it's never quite as nutty as Banff. Plus, when it's busy in Jasper, I know exactly where to go to get away from the crowds—for a hike!—whereas in Banff, I don't know where to find hiking trails that won't be overrun with tourists. I think I definitely picked the right national park to call home.
How was your Easter weekend?
