... to recline in comfort and also receive a welcome breeze as the boat roared along the middle of the lake. Over 100 years earlier, Lake Minnewanka was much, much smaller than it is now, but a decision to build a dam significantly changed the size of the lake. It also had a monumental impact on a small town located on its then shores as it caused it to be totally submerged. The underwater town now attracts scuba-divers from all over the ...
... and rode the chairlift to the top - a perfectly beautiful day, except for the hazy skies, which we found out later were NOT from N. US fires, but rather, from fires burning in Edmonton and Calgary areas. The highway head to the Columbia Ice Fields was closed every afternoon because the smoke was making visibility unsafe, so we had to cancel the next part of our explorations, to the new SkyWalk, out over the Ice Fields and Glaciers. :(
... sent us directions of a walk to follow, just as he had done for Banff. It took about 40 minutes up a narrow winding woodland path, with views of the Lake breaking through the trees every now and then, and we reached Mirror Lake.
This was tiny in comparison to Lake Louise, and a lot more secluded (and less busy), and was being fed by a waterfall from a short climb above. From the edge of Mirror Lake, you could see the top of the Tea House poking out through the ...

A perfect temperature with a magnificent backdrop of the Rockies - quite something to lay back in hot water and be looking at snow capped mountains. Then onto Lake Louise, oh wow - can't believe we are here! Had a look around the Fairmont - just for you Lee Massingham! It's just amazing, then decided to sit down and have a feed. I went ...

Our cabin (#19) is small but nice. The bathroom is clean with a good shower. The cabin is next to the Johnston Canyon Falls, which has a steep falls that is pretty impressive. I don't like the fact that the TV doesn't work and the store offers really old VHS movies to rent. It would be nice to relax at night with a TV show or movie, but we're playing UNO instead.
