Whenever we mentioned to others we were heading up to Jasper and Banff people would mention Lake Louise. Although I found Lake Louise to be beautiful, I think it is popular based upon its easy accessibility and uniqueness of having a hotel on its shore. Don't get me wrong, Lake Louise is beautiful, but I can think of many other lakes I would rather spend the afternoon at. The changing light provided an array of different water colors as we walked its shore. It was a lovely afternoon indeed.
