Lake Louise to Columbia lcefield

View Canadian Rockies on divatmotoros's travel map.

We quickly completed our breakfast and attachment procedure and headed to North. Our first stop was at Bow Lake. The road is still scenic and very dear to our mountain loving eyes.


Then we stopped at Peyto Lake. No, it is not photoshopped. Amazingly blue colors again!


We also stopped at Waterfront Lake for a quick photo


Then continued to the Columbia Icefield (Athabasca Glacier) where we stopped for the night. After setting up the trailers Zsuzsa went to the visitor center with the kids while I took a nap.


Afterwards we all climbed to the glacier which is an alerting and unforgettable place. Similar to European glaciers I have visited there are signs of the earlier places of the ice and the rate it melts is frightening. We climbed rigth up to the icefield and while it was a nice 20 degrees at the camping lot it was almost freezing cold at the glacier, despite the sun. It looks like the moon with the rocks and the gray colors everywhere.


The blue stripe where the ice melts resembles the vibrant blue of the glacier fed lakes.
