Even during a busy weekend, there are plenty of opportunities to kick back and enjoy a little peace, quiet, and some scenery - if you know where to go to avoid the crowds & crazies.
Even the waters were calm for a while, lending themselves to some photos with great reflections of the surrounding mountains.
The first ones were taken at Bow Lake, about 30 km north of Lake Louise on the spectacular Icefields Parkway.
The red roof in the distance is Num Ti Jah Lodge, established by the legendary rockies explorer, Jimmy Simpson, after he first came across the lake in 1898.
The remaining photos were taken near Field, BC, in Yoho National Park. Field was established in the 1880's as a construction camp for the Canadian Pacific Railway. Life there still revolves around the railroad, and it's location in Yoho National Park.
