Goodbye Lake Louise… (Day 36)

Posted by on August 28, 2009

…for now.

Day 36: Lake Louise

Day 36: Lake Louise

This was our last photo of Lake Louise before we left to head back to the Hat.  So peaceful. So calming.

Wouldn’t it be fantastic to live near by?!

It could make me not miss the ocean as much, that is for sure.

While we were there we also read why the water is so green/blue in a few of the lakes up in that region.  It has to do with what it called, “rock flour“.  It’s the grindings from the glacial movement. It goes into the runoff and surrounding lakes and for some reason blue is the only colour it won’t absorb, reflecting it back into your eyes.

So there you have it folks. There is my lesson, my grade 5 lesson, for the day! 🙂
