Snowy Lake Louise - by Julie
We all expected to see the picture-perfect lake, with its distinctive colour that's somewhere between robin-egg blue and turquoise.
In fact, it not only snowed the whole time, but the lake itself hadn't even lost its snow and ice cover yet - including deep snowdrifts - despite our visit being in May!
This photo shows our only glimpse of the lake itself - you can just sneak a peek at the greenish water under the snow.
Plus we found some fun in the snow that we wouldn't have found otheerwise...thanks, Mum, for this photo!
The only part of the Lake Louise visit that wasn't so popular was the news that grizzlies are often in the area. Here, my mum is less than impressed by the trail sign's grizzly warnings.
