We took a short jaunt into Lake Louise while we were in Banff. Hadn’t been there for quite some time, so just wanted to take a quick look. Lots of things were happening on the (mostly) frozen lake including skiing, skating and what looked like an ice carving exhibition that was just being set up. As you can see, the ice was very thin in some places, but where they were setting up for the ice carving there were actually vehicles parked on the ice. I guess it thickened up in a hurry from the open water we saw which was only a few hundred feet away.
I know it’s a bit late for a Merry Christmas post, but I have to start somewhere. This year Dawn and I spent Christmas in Banff. This put us close enough to Airdrie to visit family for the day and still do some exploring in the mountains on Boxing Day. It was pretty cold, but we still managed to do a little walking and see some sights.
