Each weekend I went to Banff by bus, since it got a lot cheaper because of the 150-years Canada celebration! On July 30th, I got lucky with the weather! Moraine Lake is only very beautiful when the sun shines. That is when you see these turquois colors! Lots of photos fill one page of this book.
Since the beginning of July these wild fires rage in British Columbia. Recently they expanded into the Banff National Park. The smoke is sometimes carried into Calgary by the wind!
When I arrived in Banff there was quite a bit of smoke in the air and it looked foggy from far away. In Lake Louise, the air was fine. Canmore is affected the worst by it and I took pictures on the way back home.
First, I ate lunch at the Lake Louise village. Since I recently had my birthday the waitress surprised me with a free ice cream!
A shuttle drove us to Moraine Lake for thirty dollars. I made the mistake to sit in the back and got shaken thoroughly!
First, I climbed up the rocks onto the rock pile. That is where you get the best view onto the lake! Going down I saw several chipmunks! I also made some videos.
Afterwards I walked along the lake shore until the end of the lake and had a short footbath.
These are the links to the videos:
