An Icebound Lake Louise

Nestled in a deep glacial valley of the Canadian Rockies, Lake Louise is the jewel of Banff National Park, Alberta. The waters of this celebrated lake are renowned the world over for their beautiful, opaque emerald colour. Yet the one time (so far) I saw Lake Louise, back in 2008, its surface was predominantly white.

IMG_9026Despite it being late May when I visited, and so technically probably spring, winter had yet to fully release its iron-hard grip on Lake Louise, and ice still covered much of its surface.

    Nice photos – Lake Louise is a beautiful place – as you say the amount of ice still present in May is interesting isn’t it.
