These two pictures are compliments of my daughter, Zoe Woolf McGinn (thanks Zoe), traveling with her cousins and her husband on the way to Fairmont Hot Springs. Lake Louise is a stunning place on the Alberta / BC border. I’ve been there in the winter also, about 25 years ago when the lake was frozen (people were skating on it) and everything was draped in snow.
Love the emerald color of these waters. And so many other lakes and streams that are part of this southwest Alberta / southeast BC location. People have asked me many times if Canada is beautiful. Of course it is. And of course it is all like this. But there really is some stunning geography that brings out the delighted and irrepressible wanderer in me.
