  • My granddaughter and I had high tea while gazing at frozen lake Louise. High tea was scrumptious and the view simply wonderful!  more »
  • The pictures do not do this place justice. It's truly an incredible view. No matter what time of year you go.  more »
  • A place of whiteness. In the December, Lake Louise had already had a lot of snow. Although there is no blue-Green lake, it still feels the scenery is beautiful.
