After enjoying lunch by my window with a view of the Lake Louise Ski Hill and then a nap, I was keen to get back out on my skis. I wanted easy and close by so opted for the Bow River Loop. I checked the groomers report and it stated that Loop would be looked after today. As I arrived at the parking lot, the groomer was pulling in on his big machine. He told me he just completed setting track on the Loop and was heading off to do the Campground Loop. My timing was perfect. I took off in a counter-clockwise direction and the views were immediate as you can see here.
there were peeks at the Bow River....
.....then there were wide open vistas where the trail was as close to the River as could be. This section captured a significant amount of my time, I admired and admired and admired it some more.
I don't think this River ever fully freezes over and I like it like that.
