We had a leisurely 4 km out and back stroll to the end of the lake. Tourists abound parting with their money to canoe on Lake Louise in cheerful, red, canoes. Living in British Columbia this did not peak our interest. It did make for a pretty scene on the lake though.
It was amusing to watch the chipmunk-cross-Richardson's-Ground-Squirrels (not sure what they were other than overfed chipmunks) flit in and out of the rocks. Dominic first enticed them with an empty hand then with some berries picked from nearby. When he took a moment to eat his granola bar the critters we VERY interested. Domo shooed them away though as feeding them people food is never a good idea.
Why so many pictures of the boys? Well, they were posing so I was snapping. Mothers of teenagers will appreciate the importance of capitalizing on these rare opportunities.
In the afternoon, we biked around the tenters' campground and along the river but have yet to see a real, live, bear.
|As soon as the motorhomes leave their spots for the day these little creatures come out to check out the pickings.|
|Despite the overcast weather, Lake Louise never fails to be a marvel.|
|Just in case you thought we had the place to ourselves :).|
