If you go to the Canadian Rockies make sure that you visit the Lake Louise area. We travelled north from Banff for about 45 minutes to ride the chairlift up the mountain at the Lake Louise Ski Area.
As we drove west on the Trans Canada Highway we saw the animal overpassesthat have recently been constructed to help avoid animal/vehicle collisions.
It was a beautiful day and along the way the mountain views were magnificent.
During summer months the resort offers visitors a ride part way up the ski area for hiking and viewing opportunities.
