Lake Louise Banff

September 5, 2013  |  Canada

After Glacier Canada, we drove a few hours east to the Tunnel Mountain 2 Campground at Banff National Park.

The camping was pretty much a parking lot and some of us had to parallel park our trailers.

Amanda found a hike at Lake Louise that went to two tea-houses. A group of us hiked 3.4km to the first tea-house at St. Agnes Lake where we had some pretty good sandwiches for lunch.

From there, some of our group turned back, while we pressed on to the second tea-house with Tim & Amanda and Kevin & Laura.

We enjoyed the second half of the hike so much more than the first. There was a lot less traffic and it was a bit more rustic. The views were incredible, and then it started to hail.

When we reached the second tea-house we rewarded ourselves with treats. Brian had hot chocolate and chocolate cake and I had tea and tea biscuits with jam.

The entire hike was about 9 miles total and completely worth it. We had an awesome time.

Dinner Last Night:
We had a pot luck for our last night here in Glacier MT. I made vegetarian chili. Amanda’s vegan corn bread was so good I had 3 pieces (recipe please?) and Laura made a delicious green salad with purple cabbage and apples (dressing please?).

  1. sounds great and is beyond vivid….

  2. Wow, the photos are amazing. My husband and I visited Banff in March a few years ago, so everything was white and frozen. I would love to go back to see the Lake at it’s finest. And I had no idea about the tea house hikes. Very cool!

  3. Gorgeous place, nice photos. Went there decades ago on my first motorcycle road trip…spectacularo!
