On my birthday, I wanted to see the sunrise, so we started driving in the total darkness.
Weather did not cooperate; since it was so cloudy there really was no sunrise.
But we did get to check one thing off my list…
Canoeing at Emerald Lake was $60 CAD (as of Sept 2017), muchhhh cheaper than Lake Louise which charged $105 CAD (per hour).
I loved the color of this lake – so much more than all the other lakes we saw on this trip. It was also less touristy and not as crowded.
After hitting up Takakkaw Falls, we decided we still had time to go to Radium…
Dinner at Old Salzburg Restaurant – Austrian food which means schnitzel, spatzel, strudel!
It was around $6 CAD to get into the Radium Hot Springs.
It was pretty awesome soaking in a hot pool while staring off into the mountains.
On this Canadian Rockies trip, we checked off a lot of things on our bucket list! The next time we come back (and I hope we do), I want to:
- Finally get to Maligne Lake
- Hike to Lake O’Hara
- See the Northern Lights
- See more sunrises and sunsets!
