A bright day at Lake Louise.
Gotta love those pretty teal glacial waters.

"With 11 square miles of terrain on four mountain faces, Lake Louise is Canada’s second largest ski area and one of the largest ski resorts in North America. It also has one of the longest consistent ski seasons in Canada from early November to late May."

Enjoy a wonderful Friday and weekend ahead!

Colorful canoes waiting riders on Lake Moraine. So peaceful and memorable to paddle around this beloved iconic lake.

I'll be away for a bit, family time and some camping. Let the fun begin....

Thanks for your visit, comments, faves and support. You make my day!

The sun comes forth boldly over Mt. Astley and Banff's Minnewanka Lake.

"Lake Minnewanka ("Water of the Spirits" in Nakoda) is a glacial lake located in the eastern area of Banff National Park. Dams were built in 1912 and 1941 to supply Banff with hydro-electric power. The most recent dam (1941) raised the lake 30 m (98 ft) and submerged the resort village of Minnewanka Landing that had been present there since 1888. Because of the presence of the submerged village, submerged bridge pilings, and submerged dam (the one from 1912) the lake is popular among recreational scuba divers. The construction of the dam resulted in involuntary resettlement of inhabitants from the reservoir area."

Thank for taking a look!

The Ten Peaks were shrouded this chilly autumn morning which created a beautiful moody ambience for first light. Waited hours before a peak finally poked thru (seen below).
Never a bad day here.

Enjoy a wonderful Holiday weekend!

Two pointy peaks seen when driving north on Banff's Icefields Parkway.

This perspective shows the horned-shaped tip of Mount Athabasca near the top that is called the "Silverhorn".

Just one of the zillions (OK, billions) of crazy cool peaks seen along this amazing drive.

Have a fabulous Friday and weekend!
