Lake of Little Fishes

What we now call Lake Louise, the Stoney Nakota First Nations People called the Lake of Little Fishes. I don’t know about you, but I prefer the later. This body of water is rich in color (and for a really cool reason). As glaciers move, they grind up the bedrock below (creating rock flour). As the ice melts, it carries these tiny silt sized bits downstream, creating striking, milky masses of water.

You can hike around this beauty in no time–so don’t miss this spot. Or if you have $500 to spare every night, you can stay right on the lake at theย Chateau Lake Louise. If not, head back into town and grab a beer at Banff Ave Brewing.

Take a peak at a few photos I took in Montana with similarly brilliant colored waters.
