Laura E. Swan level-classic November 26, 2011

OM GOSH! I have NEVER seen this location shot so well as here, Heather. Such drama and command. This is terrific.

Our little Family unit loves to camp in the Rockies and this past summer was our first time to discover the camping grounds right in Lake Lousie Townsite.

This HIstorical Train Station was a favorite spot for us and as Kiki did, I tried to get it just right. It wasn't an easy shoot.

You have captured the mood of a Canadian Rocky Train Station. It's strength and fury.

Did you eat the the adjacent restaurant? The ribs there are amazing.

This dining car from the Canadian Pacific Railway is on display at the Lake Louise Station in Banff National Park Canada. I remember traveling by train as a young child and eating in a car like this one. I just had to snap this one for the memory book.
