We arrived at Lake Louise around 6 p.m.
There are many birds here on the lake. Bird Island, one of the many islands found here, is a nesting site for gulls. Lake Louise is also known to be the only freshwater nesting site for cormorants. A loon was sounding off during the night we were there. Its mesmerizing trill floated along on the evening air. The lake is also well known for wonderful lake trout fishing. It is not uncommon to reel in a twenty pound lake trout here! Many people come to the lake and ice fish in the winter. The next morning we enjoyed a good breakfast at the lodge and set off for home. A couple of members of the Nelchina herd were also using the road this morning.
The harsh winters sure do a number on the roads. Of the sixteen miles we drove on this road, the vast majority of it was like this.
