We arrived in Lake Louise after a lovely few days in Banff. We wandered down to the edge of the lake to where the very large Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise stands. It sure is one large, impressive building! We did venture inside to have a sneaky peak, and check out how much it would be for high tea, but we decided that CAD39pp was just a bit too much for our budget. We did the next best thing and ate a picnic tea outside on the lake's foreshore (same view, just more rustic seating!).
Half Brother, by Kenneth Oppel, is a really good book. It certainly appeared to be almost unputdownable.)
Takakkaw Falls is one of the highest waterfalls in Canada - and while impressive when we saw it, it must really be something during the spring melt. The falls are 384m high, and water tumbling out from the ledge near the top is quite spectacular.
We finished the day with a soak in the hot tub on the roof of our hotel - a perfect end to a perfect day.
