Lake Louise

Welcome to another blog from Guest Tracey and her trip to Canada.

One morning we decided to get up early (4:50 early) to drive 45 minutes to Lake Louise in Banff National Park. It was recommended we leave early if we wanted to find a parking spot as the parking lots tend to fill up early. It’s a favorite spot for photographers to take sunrise photos at Lake Louise and Lake Moraine. We took a few shots but were eager to start hiking so we didn’t linger long.

We hiked the trails along the shores of Lake Louise, which is next to the Fairmont Chateau Hotel, and hiked 2.2 miles. We passed Mirror Lake and waterfalls on our way to the Agnes Tea House. The hike was amazing, and we were happy to make it to the tea house.

We did have to laugh though. Agnes Tea House is NOT Starbucks and a gentleman in front of us tried to order a fancy coffee for his girlfriend as the waitress looked at me like can’t he read the menu. The place is cash only with no running water. The workers stay in a cabin behind the tea house for 4 days hiking up the mountain carrying what supplies are needed and then returning.

The hike was not an easy one, but it was worth every minute.
