After a rainy night that left us practically floating in our tents, we loaded up to drive to Jasper for the next day. Since we were just a few miles away and up early extra early, we popped over to Lake Louise to check her out before she got crowded. I was SUPER bitter that it was so cloudy, but the lake was still beautiful. I cannot even imagine what that view must be like from the Fairmont. I WILL stay there one day.

As we drove north, we got into a lot of snow which was a bit of a surprise.

It was pouring rain and super cloudy, so we decided to come back by the next day in the hope of better weather. We drove further north ton the Parkway to Sunwampta Falls.

We stopped at the “Goats and Glaciers” overlook which was gorgeous.

I still cannot believe the color of the water! We also stopped at Athabasca Falls which was the most crowded spot we had been to yet, but it was totally worth it..
