Shuswap Lake is fantastic water system on the Kamloops Plateau before the start of the Canadian desert. I was travelling from Jasper towards Vancouver and needed a couple of stops on the way! One stop was Shuswap Lake and the other more unusual forced stop was Cache creek in the middle of the Canadian desert.
It was time to leave Banff and travel north to Jasper National Park. After Lake Louise Highway of Heroes (Trans Canada 1) turns west and continues up in the mountains to the famous railway spiral tunnels at Kicking Horse pass. I travelled north on Highway 93 Icefields Parkway of many considered the most beautiful Highway of the world.
My second day in Banff was spent walking around Lake Louise and up to Lake Agnes Tea house on the right hand side of the lake. The elevation gain is 385 meter; expected walking time is 2.5 to 3 hours for the 3.4 km to Lake Agnes Tea house. But first i few more view from Moraine Lake!
Visited Canada during the summer 2017 during their 150 year celebration! I arrived in Calgary and after a couple of days in Calgary drove out to HI Kananaskis hostel just north of Peter Lougheed Provincial Park. This hostel was my base for my visits in Peter Loghheed Provincial Park and Banff National Park.
