I got out for a hike at Lake Louise, Banff National Park yesterday. The crowds around the hotel thinned out quickly, leaving just a few hikers up on the mountain trails.
Traversing across about fifteen snowpacks during a two-hour trek was rewarded with spectacular views of Victoria and Lefroy Glaciers, the surrounding peaks of the Canadian Rockies and a peek of the primroses pushing through the wet spring soil.
And the Plain of Six Glaciers Teahouse, which only opened up a few days ago, on the first of June, provided a nice, refreshing cup of high, mint, tea at 2,099 m (6,888 feet).
