One of our daily hikes near Lake Louise was the Johnston Canyon trail. This trail is near Lake Louise but is an easy drive from Banff, which is how we accessed the hike. The scenery was over the top, as were the crowds! The hike was flat and easy and well worth the effort. The falls have a nice view through the tunnel (cave) at the end of the trail; the crowd was too large so we passed on that view.

This lake was probably the most beautiful lake we visited; however, they were all fantastic. The hike to the viewpoint was a bit challenging, so Kathy passed on it. She was still able to do some hiking and found her own views.

We stayed one night at the Fairmont - Lake Louise. It is a beautiful spot. We enjoyed the area after the crowds left in the evening. All the places we visited had fantastic flowers and Lake Louise was no exception.
