A classic example of mountain weather forecasting. Environment Canada predicted +24 and sun, but it turned out to be cloud, snow and around +4. Nevertheless, this was a great scramble. As Alan Kane writes, the ‘crux’ really is negotiating the hundreds of hikers on the Lake Agnes trail who are visiting the tea house! At the end of the day what I find really interesting is how one can go from feeling that they don’t know a place – all I knew of Lake Louise before Wednesday was the cliché view from the lodge, and the tea house – to a feeling of intimacy so quickly.
