Day 7 - Lake Louise & Lake Moraine

After having a few days of rest, we fired up the Harley's and took a ride to Lake Louise which is about 37 miles away from Banff. What a beautiful ride & beautiful lake! We rented a canoe and went out onto the lake. We had such a great time rowing all around the lake.
We at lunch at the Fairmont Hotel which was a beautiful hotel. We walked around the grounds for a little bit and saw a cute squirrel who was also having lunch.
We then rode to Lake Moraine about 8 miles from Lake Louise. We were treated to more wonderful scenery at Lake Moraine. We walked around the shore of Lake Moraine and enjoyed the beautiful scenery.
On our way back to the hotel, we came upon two big horn sheep having an early dinner at the side of
the road. They appeared to very unaware of all the humans around them taking pictures. The one seemed to take a great interest in Jeff!
Once we got back into Banff, we went over to the Banff Springs Hotel. It was a beautiful hotel but there was so much traffic around it, we couldn't pull over & take a picture. From there we make the short ride over to Bow River Falls. Again, more beautiful scenery.
We ended the day with a great dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory.
