So today started with an early rise and breakfast and our journey to Lake Louise. We stopped on the way to admire the view and then we drove to Lake Moraine the first of our lake stops today. The colours were pretty amazing and the scenery just as good. From here we walked to the too viewpoint where we took some more photos and then went and explored the lake and the gift shop further. Thankfully I didn't have my purse otherwise I would have spent a fortune on outdoor clothing and souvenirs but instead I admired them and move on!
From here we drove to a little picnic stop and had some lunch before driving on to Lake Louise. When we got to Lake Louise which was once again pretty amazing we started our hike up to the tea house. The start of today's hike was much easier than yesterday probably because we didn't have to go up an extreme hill to start but as we made our way up to Mirror Lake we stopped at points to admire the view and to take photos of some of the wildlife - namely squirrels and birds. Also to make the wall more fun it was snowing at points during our walk actual real life snow. So while everyone was at home boiling, wishing it would cool down we were enjoying little snow showers!! We finally made it up to Mirror Lake and took some more photos before continuing our journey up to Lake Agnes and the tea house!
When we made it to the tea house and Lake Agnes we took more photos (and I didn't a little bit of an extra hike to the toilet - up a hill - how is that fair?!). Then some of the group went up to the Beehive but we opted to walk up the little Beehive to see Lake Louise from above instead. So we started our adventure up on the snow and as usual chatted as we went. When we reached the top we admired the views, took some photos and were a little worried about the people who were dangling their legs over the edge. We had a quick fuel stop at the top before making our descent down the Little Beehive and back to Lake Louise once again in the snow!
When we got to the bottom we rewarded ourselves with a hot chocolate before we jumped in the van and went to check in to our hotel.
Once we checked in we had a quick turn around and then headed back out for our dinner at a place called Truffle Pigs in Field.
When we arrived our table wasn't quite ready so we went and looked around the gift shop where we found some rather strange things!
After dinner we returned to the hotel via another Lake and finally saw some wildlife on our way back - an elk! When we got back to the hotel I had an ice cream before headed to the bar to listen to one of the lads sing karaoke before then going to bed!
