Our Lake Louise is like Old Faithful in Yellowstone; everyone heads for these headliners and often overlook some other great tourist sights. It reminds me of a story I heard about a tourist rushing into the Louvre breathless asking the security guard, "Where's that Mona Lisa, I'm double parked?" Classic!
Lake Louise is our Mona Lisa, but the Icefield Parkway that leads north from the wonderful tourist attraction has sights like this all the way north to Jasper. Some do not even venture up that first-class road.
' I have Canadian friends who drive east to west and back on the Trans Canada, passing through Banff, who have never seen anything north of Lake Louise. Go figure!
They missed a ton of this.
P.S. That is Di and I with our sister-in-law, all the crowds are back at Lake Louise.
