    lol, its funny you should mention that because we initially were going to do a winter wedding at Lake Louise, but it was going to cost at least 30k just for the wedding day itself with all the things that we wanted. So we figured we'd rather spend the money and have a whole week with our family instead of just a one day event. The mountains really are incredible and its kind of a shame that pictures (at least my amature ones) can't fully capture the magic up there.

      Oooh, glad I came across this post! I might just go do the hike this weekend as the weather is supposed to be gorgeous. How long did it take you to get up there? Just wondering if it is better to go early in the morning or see if I can get away with starting at noon.

        That's exactly what i was going to say - the BC coast (and the whole Pacific Northwest for that matter) is gorgeous, but it was so much cheaper to have a DW - AND you get a vacation!

        But seriously - if you have never seen a glacial lake, ladies (and gents) - put it on your list of things to do before you die, because it is a sight like no other. I can't wait to go here and do this hike. The ones i have seen have been on golf courses in Whistler, and i bet they can't even begin to compare!!

        Thanks again Ana for posting these shots!

          OMG those are amazing! How gorgeous! My sis is coming up next month, but I seriously doubt we'll be doing anything as cool as that.

          Um it took us about 3 hours to get up, and about 2 hrs to come down. Its 18km, but if you're in good shape you can get up there quicker. We took 3 hours and we were with my FI's uncle who is not in shape at all, so we had to stop alot. Also we stopped a ton after we go to the lookout, and then we started hitting the lakes, so we kept stopping to take pics etc. The climb is pretty easy though, definitely not too steep. I rolled my ankle a few times but that's because I'm a dumbass. hehe! We started at about 10am and got back down around 4pm. We took food and water up with us though and spend about 2 hours at the final lake up there. Bring seeds with you because the birds and chipmuncks love it! Let me know how it goes!
