Day 19 (Thursday): Leisurely brekkie before our (very) short drive to Lake Louise. Worth taking the Bow Valley Parkway as soon as you can (not well sign posted - take the Castle Mountain turnoff about 5km from Banff). Stumbled upon an eagle's nest (eerie) above the bridge between Highway 1 and Cradle Mountain which nobody else seemed to notice ... …
... Erratic, a huge rock that was carried into the plains by a glacier millions of years ago. Lunch at Okotoks Timmies 1.40. Arrived at Calgary 2.40 at the Glenmore Inn. Time for the Stampede 2pm. For those that don't know, which I didn't, it's just like The Easter Show in Sydney or The Ekka in Brisbane. Great show and Fireworks at the ...
... process where the grapes are naturally frozen on the vine and handpicked at the perfect time. Enjoyed a lovely dinner in a Swiss restaurant.
The next morning we went for a hike up the side of Lake Louise to Agnes' Tea House.

... if we could get a table, they have me a buzzer & 5 minutes later we were seated in pole position on the patio looking over the Lake! I kept saying to Craig - "just pinch me", I couldn't believe it.

Started the day with a beautiful selection of food served in the large dinning room with large glass windows overlooking the snow caped mountains that surround us.

After about 1.5hr drive we arrived at Lake Louise in the Rockies, where we had a buffet lunch in the resort that had views of the mountains through floor to ceiling windows.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBaker Creek Mountain Resort Lake Louise
Great chalet about 15 minutes out of Lake Louise but worth the drive. Spacious cabin with gas fireplace and Jacuzzi in the main room! Pleasant balcony with forest / mountain views. Café / restaurant was great - especially the mussels! No TV and poor reception so very relaxing .... even had time for a jigsaw and cards! Staff were very friendly and attention to detail amazing .... only downside was no ironing board and plenty of mozzies!
