I woke this morning to a shocking surprise when I saw how cold it was! When I went to bed last night conditions looked favourable for a X-C Ski trek so my pack was packed, my attire was laid aside, I was ready for the day. -26C With a wind chill of -31C was not part of my plan for today but it was in Mother Nature's plan. I only hoped I could get into my car and that it would start! I did have success with that and with my new laid out plan of bundling up and going for a photography walk around Lake Louise.
On a January Thursday morning with these frigid temperatures, Lake Louise was not busy. I could count on one hand the number of visitors there. This does not include the crew who were hastily clearing away snow and flooding the rink. I arrived at the shore of Lake Louise to see this sight!
I had many many layers on and I was quite fine to just stroll about.
It was an incredible morning to be here, I savoured everything about the peace, the quiet, the beauty.
Here are a few photos to show you what I have a hard time describing in words.
