Today's Itinerary: Leave Jasper and retrace our steps (south) to Lake Louise.
The trek south to Lake Louise was along the beautiful Columbian Icefields Parkway. I stopped frequently to take pictures. The North Saskatchewan River made a wonderful brackdrop and there were lots of ponds and lakes. Interestingly, many of the deeper lakes were still frozen, though I don't think you'd want to walk on them.
The sky was overcast and dark. Picture taking was made difficult.

We checked into the Lake Louise Inn early, about 2 p.m. and then checked out the gift shops at Morraine Lake and Lake Louise. Of course, we admired the scenery, too. A lot of the ice that we'd seen on Morraine Lake a few days earlier was gone.
