It is a perfect example as to why it pays to get up early as a photographer.

Canoe Lake Louise and Banff National Park, Alberta
Posted by Dave And Deb on September 14, 2009
While paddling Dave commented on what an “Authentic Canadian Moment” we were having – Canoeing in the Rocky’s on the majestic Lake Louise. He managed to take some great views of the Glacier from a different angle than what others were stuck with being in front of the Chateau Fairmont. Also, looking back towards the hotel was quite beautiful and having the structure in front of the hills and forests gave a great perspective of just how large the land is.
We have always wanted to climb in the Rocky Mountains. Finally, the day had come on the Chevy Equinox Adventure Drive. On Day one, Dave and I drove ourselves in our spiffy 2010 Equinox to Canmore where we met James; our guide from Yamnuska Mountain Adventures. It is the premier climbing school in the Rocky’s so we were in very good hands.
