Lake Louise is located in beautiful Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada.
Lake Louise — Canada’s “Diamond in the Wilderness,” and the “Hiking Capital of Canada”. This area offers a tremendous diversity of recreational and sightseeing opportunities. Lake Louise is home to one of North America’s finest downhill ski areas, and has numerous hiking and walking trails. The region abounds with spectacular scenery, from glaciers to waterfalls. The Village of Lake Louise is on the Trans-Canada Highway fifty-seven kilometers (thirty-five miles) west of Banff.
Lake Louise is fed by glacial runoff from Victoria Glacier. Like many of the lakes in the Rockies the water is either deep green or blue. This is caused by fine sediments called “rock flour” floating in the water. Rock flour is fine powdery rock that has been crushed and ground by a glacier. Lake Louise is a beautiful green color, but Peyto Lake, (further north on the Icefields Parkway) is a rich baby blue.

SOLD! Black matted print to an unknown buyer – December 9, 2009. Thank you so much! Turns out the buyer was my daughter who bought it as a surprise Christmas gift for me, so it now graces my own wall, and it’s beautiful if I do say so myself. Matted Prints by RB are gorgeous, thank you Karen!
