So, sunrise (Again) saw me trek to Moraine Lake.Moraine Lake is about 14 kms from Lake Louse. The light is all wrong for sunrise at Lake Louise and i was told this was the spot to be. After asking the lady if I'd be ok with bears, etc she assured me that other people would be there. So at 6.30am I discovered that it was a fairly popular spot. I walked up about 200 steps (probably more but i was fairly puffed by the time i got to the top!) and there were around 3 others there. By sunrise, there was about 30!!! And the number just kept climbing!

So here are some shots......again, raw shots, no editing.

i spent the afternoon doing a horsehide up to the Lake Agnes Teahouse. It is a climb of approx 385m up a 2 k trail. It was amazing...except it had been 21 years since I rode a horse and , well, I discovered bones in my bottom I didn't think I had. I also decided that riding western saddles isn't my favourite- but Roper and I had a great time being led by Sarah, a girl from Montreal. It was nice to meet a Canadian, as it seems that most people that work here are Australian, and the people in the hotels are all Australian, especially South Australia. We are beginning to think australia must be a little light on for people at the moment!

Whilst i was horse riding, the boys hired a canoe and went canoeing on Lake Louise. They've become quite the duo. It all goes well as long as Jack is declared the Captain of the ship (canoe). Clearly Mick does most of the paddling!_02A3057.jpg_02A2920.jpg_02A2918.jpg_02A2903.jpg_02A2899.jpg270__02A2862.jpg_02A2853.jpg
