On Thursday we took an outing up into the mountains of Banff National Park on the BC border (we were only a couple kilometers from BC at one point). We spent time at Lake Louise and had supper in the city of Banff. It's really a most remarkable area (and only 10 hours from our house)--I hope to get back.
Lake Louise has the bluest water I've ever seen.
The family of bears we saw at the other end of the lake.
More scenes from around Lake Louise. When we got to the end of the lake, the temperature dropped a bit as the wind blew down off the glaciers.
