Getting High in the Canadian Rockies

Today began with a thrilling ride on the Lake Louise gondola to the top of the mountain across the valley from Lake Louise. Although we didn’t see any bears, the view across the valley to the mass of mountains that form a backdrop on Lake Louise was magnificent. Everyone assured us that there had been both black bears and grizzlies just an hour or so before we arrived. Yeah, sure! We enjoyed the views and the wildlife interpretive center then headed down for our next stop.

The afternoon was spent at Moraine Lake, a shirt tail cousin of Lake Louise. Moraine Lake sits a little higher and a bit deeper in the mountains. We hiked the shoreline trail to capture as many views as possible of this emerald green lake. This place personifies beauty.

Tonight we will have to complete our daily drawing at home in our condo. We simply were too embroiled in photography to stop to draw. Here are some of my photos from the day.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.
