Great day at the lake (even in the winter). Stunning views and color with beautiful mountains. Nice paths to walk on.

It was a very nice short drive. We didn't get to do the hike. We'll try and get it in next time. It doesn't take to long to do so you should definitely do it.

We were just going for a drive around Tunnel Mountain and came out at the sign for Lake Minnewanka. I just kept driving and was rewarded with amazing views around every corner. Well worth the drive. Aussies, it isn't pronounced as it is spelt!!!

We drove up just because we could and it was a nice winter day. Roads are fine even in the winter and the scenery is great. Got some good pictures across the frozen lake.

THis lake is near the Swiss-looking village of Banff,Alberta,Canada.There are docile Elk and Moose around,and it is close to the Glacier-fed lake near Banff.The air is clean there and the water is very cold,even in summer,as it is fed from the glacier and mountain snow.If you want to really get away,it is highly recommended.Banff and the nearby glacier lake are beautiful sites close by.
