Lake Louise, Canada
There is no change of the scenes of poppy flowers, lake and glacia in front
of the Fairmont Lake Louise Hotel for over fifty years.

Lake Louise is located 52 kms northwest of Banff, and located 207 kms southeast
of Jasper. The town is
much cozier and less commercial than Banff; it feels like the doorway to
the ruggedness of the Rockies on
both sides of the Albert-British Columbia border. Lake Louise itself has
two parts: the townsite in the Bow
River Valley, and the well-known Lake itself. The town is also the starting
point of the Icefields Parkway,
passing, through Columbia Icefields up to Jasper.

The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is on the eastern shore of Lake Louise,
Alberta. The original Chateau
was gradually built up at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century by the Canadian Pacific
Railway and was thus"kin" to its predecessors, the Banff Springs
Hotel, and the Chateau Frontenac in
Quebec City. The Painter Wing,built in 1913,is the oldest portion of the
hotel still standing. The Mount
Temple Wing, opened in 2004, is the newest wing of the hotel and features
modern meeting facilities.
The hotel was first conceived by the railway at the end of the 19th century, as a vacation destination to
lure moneyed travelers into taking trains and heading West. By the time
airplanes and automobiles had
displaced the trains, it had gained sufficient renown to have a life of
its own. The Canadian Pacific Railway
long ago sold it to other interests. From the start, the goal was to exploit the stunning natural beauty of
the emerald-green lake and of Victoria's glacier, which rose above it.
There were many hiking courses
for nature lovers. It was originally built to function only in summer.
The hotel was winterized in 1982 and
now offers ski resort services during the winter months.

However, the horse manure pollutes
the surrounding nature, and this activity should be stopped in order to
preserve the nature we cannot redeem, soon.
