Lake Louise, gem of the Canadian Rockies

Nothing is more iconic than the view of the Lake Louise Chateau cradled into the montains and surrounding glaciers. 
Just like Banff, the place is overcrowded and an Asian tourists' favorite, just like Interlaken in Switzerland or Paris in France. It truly is a picture-perfect tourist spot which explain the fleet of tourist buses beating a path to it.

We loved it too and our only regret is that we didn't meet much wildlife while in the Banff National Park. We'd thought we'd see some bears, but no luck; they all were on vacation! The only animal we saw was a panicky deer stuck in traffic in the center of Banff.

In fact we see much more wildlife passing through our own backyard at home that we've seen this time in a place they're supposed to congregate. Go figure!
