We are up early this morning to beat some of the crowds at Lake Louise. We had expected to rent a canoe and paddle around the lake but they wanted $50 an hour. We decided to take the hike around the lake. It was a great hike where we found climbers enjoying their climbs in the great weather. The views are awesome. We did not go all the way to the tea house but did do about 10k.
The trip back confirmed why we left early. There were people everywhere. Most were speaking in foreign languages to us. The parking lot was full and the cars were parking on the side of the road. If you plan to go here use the suggestion on the road sign that parking is a problem between 10:00 and 16:00.
We will leave here tomorrow with the destination being Glacier National Park in the lower 48.
