Lake Louise, Banff National Park Canada
Description: Lake Louise is the most famous glacial lake in the Canadian Rockies and considered the most beautiful in the Western Hemisphere was named for Princess Louise Carolina Alberta, daughter of Queen Victoria is 5,680 feet above sea level. Its emerald color is due to glacial rock flower (silt from the glacier). It remains frigid all year (no swimming). Victoria Glacier and Mt Victoria in distance (continental divide) and Mount Fairview to the left side.
I will present several views of the area in the next several days. Comment or critique always welcome.
