Lake Louise & Yoho N.P & Moraine Lake 1-Day Tour from Calgary or Banff

7 reviews
Skirt the slopes of the Continental Divide as you explore Yoho National Park and beyond with an experienced local guide. Spend time meandering along the shores of Moraine Lake's opalescent waters and examine the natural span of a river-carved bridge created over thousands of years. <br><br>From a central meeting location in Calgary, ride out of town with your guide as you head toward the evergreen forest and granite peaks of Yoho National Park. Look for moose, bear, and elk that call this stunning landscape home, and make a stop at Lake Louise to snap photos of its turquoise waters, just steps away from Banff's charming downtown.<br><br>Find out how railway engineers overcame the Continental Divide's steep terrain with a visit to the serpentine Sprial Tunnels, see where the Kicking Horse River punched through rock to create a natural bridge, and fill your camera with postcard-worthy shots of Moraine Lake's brilliant color before you return to your ride and catch a lift back to Calgary.

Coming across this impressive statue of Sitting Eagle on a down town street corner is something of a surprise. However, brings some local history and culture among the concrete and glass.

Sitting Eagle Statue is standing on the corner of 7 Ave and 6th street SW. It's a beautiful statue especially the detailed work of the headdress, clothes and the thing in his left hand.

I really like this statue, I stop to look at it everytime I step by. Yet I wished if it were bigger and in more obvious location as it reflects calgary's heritage.

But equally glad that they are commemorating one of Calgary's Aboriginal pioneers, John Hunter. I saw a great photo of him as a young man on the Whyte Museum's web site, and it looks like he cut a fine figure in those days. He was a noted businessman and rancher. The statue is quite ordinary, however, and doesn't, in my mind, portray the strength of character he must have had...
