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!

Left Jasper today & drove to Bow River/Lake Louise were we are staying in another cabin for the next three nights. Another first for Bob our cabin at Baker Creek Mountain Resort is a digital detox - there's no TV. Another blue sky day which afforded us the views of the mountain tops of the Canadian Rockies. Our favorite stop was the Athabasca Falls.
I awoke to the most spectacular view in the Rockies…Lake Louise and the Victoria Glacier at sunrise. Thanks to our fabulous upgrade to the lake view room it was a fantastic view from above. We headed down to the lake for a quick photo op while the water was still perfectly still and undisturbed. The canoe rentals don't start until 11 and there was little wind over the water so the reflection was very nice. Unfortunately a bus load of ...
... two rivers.
So this set us up well as we approached Emerald Lake which we knew was supposed to be beautiful but until you arrive you cannot take in the staggering beauty of both the lake and area. Here we walked around the lake through vast forests which surround it to the sourve of the glacier waters then back around to the front, its hard to put into words so I hope the pictures do it justice!
... yum Went for another walk around outside to walk off dinner and it was mighty chilly out there!!! Really feeling it after 33-35 deg every day in New York and a high of only 16 here today! Quite a shock!! Courtney is going to FaceTime with all the fam tonight - it will be about 1am here but we will just wake up and then (hopefully) go back to sleep!!! Looking forward to seeing everyone. First day in beautiful Alberta over. Such a great day, looking forward to more fun tomorrow ...
... this place is a must! Opulence abounds, chandeliers, stone staircases, archways galore. Plus the young and beautiful are in for a 'world media conference' making us feel very dowdy when sharing a lift with people who are obviously in love with what they see in the lift mirrors!! Enough of people it is the scenery we are here for. So back to those superlatives! The Banff National Park covers about 6,660 square Kms. Views to die for - not much ...
