Lake Louise and Victoria Glacier

Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada

Not the best composition as only a tiny sliver of Lake Louise is visible but there were mobs of people and this was taken at lake level. Water is a milky aqua colour due to glacial and snowpack runoff which is still happening. Evenually the silt does settle and the lake's colour deepens to an almost tropical aquamarine shade.

About 2 hrs and 30 minutes though we stayed at the condo in Canmore so only 50 mins from there.
