Lake Louise is pretty darn special - even in the pouring rain. On Monday when we woke up it was raining in Banff. We went to Juniper for breakfast where I had a particularly yummy salmon benny and asked what our best options would be for a rainy day.
After discussing options that mostly seemed to revolve around shopping we decided to head to Lake Louise and try our luck after stopping by our hotel room for some waterproofs!
I grabbed my hiking boots and off we went, as we got closer to Lake Louise the rain lightened and we decided it was perfect hiking weather.

At first it is pretty easy and flat but as you go on the paths get steeper and rockier - but the payoffs in terms of views and experience get a lot better too.
|You can horse trek too!|
On our way back the weather turned and it started to rain. I was so glad we had decided to hike rather than canoe on Lake Louise - I think we got better views and it sure beat being stuck in a boat in the rain. In fact it was pretty close to perfect.
