Canadian Rockies Trip

Lina and I are on a tour of the Canadian Rockies. It’s a 4 day/3 night tour, so the schedule is kinda rushed. This is end of day 2 and I’m writing this post on my Nintendo DS (which is hella slow), so I can’t write too much.

Day 1 was pretty much just driving, washroom break, eating then back to driving and repeat. Day 2 was an early start from Mary`s Hotel in Golden, BC–especially considering we are one hour ahead from Vancouver time. Boy was it worth the early start. Emerald lake was absolutely beautiful! The temperature there in the morning was only about 40°F (on a day I decided to wear shorts), which made the air crisp and cool. That, of course, added extra brilliance to the green shimmer of the lake.
On the bus and off to Lake Louise we went,

Our first activity of the day was the Gondola ride up the ski resort for a view of the lake and surrounding mountains. Again, as I was in my shorts, I was quite cold. Needless to say, the view was fantastic. We spent about an hour up there, downloaded after that and had lunch at the bottom.

From there, we were whisked away to Lake Louise and encouraged to visit Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. I understand know what people mean when they say that we live in a beautiful country and that the Rockies are a must see. Everything, from the lake to the glaciers to hotel is picture-esque. We took many photos there, headed to Banff for dinner and light shopping and ended up in Calgary.
And now it’s time to sleep for another early day awaits.

Edit: Between Emerald Lake and Lake Louise Gondola Ride on day 2 we also visited the Natural Landbridge

    Well… this actually sounds interesting. However, clearly you are dead without spell check.

    PS: What dufus wears shorts when it’s “40 deg. F”?

    PPS: Are you American? Or is Eastern BC/Alberta under the imperial system? WE-IRD!

    I didn’t have my F to C calculator with me, so I couldn’t tell you the temperature in Celsius.
