More Photos (III) of Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada (August 8-10, 2008)

Here I am at the top of Big Beehive, with Lake Louise far below
Crystal-clear Lake Agnes reflects the blue sky above
Lake Agnes Tea House was first built as a rustic shelter in 1904, then converted into a tea room in the 1920s; it has been a popular day hiking destination ever since. Tea and biscuits: a most civilized way to end a hike.
Storm clouds begin to roll in over Lake Louise; 30 minutes later, it was hailing!
