Lake Louise

Since I relocated to Canada in 2010, I have had the opportunity to visit Banff National Park twice: April 2010 and May 2012. It is impossible to translate into words what this astonishing park has to offer. What I did not know is that the lake does not thaw until June. In April and May you will still see an ice-covered lake, although you will not be allowed to walk or ice-skate. In addition, all the surrounding areas of the lake (parking lot, paths and trails) still had a lot a snow.
