Canada Trip Day 22: Lake Louise, Alberta

4 July 2010 - It's taking me almost a year to finish documenting this Canada trip! I've been writing/thinking all day but the actual writing itself didn't amount much. Anyway, my trip to Lake Louise was disappointing. The day was rather gloomy and it was drizzling. I had imagined a sky of clear blue over the beautiful turquoise waters of one of Canada's most famous, Lake Louise. The early morning fog cast a different ambience over the mysterious calmness of the lake, which was not bad at all. The scenery was still beautiful, just not what I'd hoped. Nonetheless, tourists, click away! None of that dampened mood business, not on a holiday.

Highway tunnels where animals can cross from above

And bridges where animals can cross under. Different types of crossings have to be made for different animals. Some animals like grassy crossings while others like gravel-ly type with streams.
