...ok there they are. Off we go!
We started our morning at 0700 at the famous Lake Louise. There is no sugar coating it- this lake is freaking amazing. Our dear friends Brad and Bekah honeymooned there and woke up to that view every morning. There is something so romantic and pure about it, and at 7am- we didn't have to share that view with many. During the height of the day, this lake is an opaque, milky blue but in the morning, the air is so still that it was a mirror. Lake Louise- you are a gem.
At the top of the 'mini mountain' is Lake Agnus and a special little treat for its hikers. A Swiss Tea House was built right on the lake shore in the 1920's. It has no electricity and the water for the tea is hauled by buckets right from the crystal clear water. We reached the adorable abode around 8:30 and were so ready for some steamy morning tea. Despite our climb, it was pretty chilly at the top. As we settled down for our tea and biscuits we saw a familiar face. The young woman that passed us on the trail was our waitress lugging in huge tea pots from the lake! What a morning commute! I will never complain about traffic on the way to the hospital anymore!
