On our visit to Lake Louise last month, we arrived in early morning before the crowds were out in force. We knew it was going to be a short time before the tour buses showed up. Once I arrive at Lake Louise, I usually check to see if the boat house has opened yet. If not, I know that the brightly colored red canoes will be lined up in front waiting for visitors to take them for a ride around the lake. With any luck, the waters of this glacier-fed lake will be still enough to provide a mirror reflection. Fortunately, both conditions were positive and I was able to get this photo.
