We started our Boxing Day with another hearty breakfast at Poppy’s Brasserie in Chateau Lake Louise, perfect before a chilly but magical sleigh ride around the lake.
Mouse, on the left and Mutt, on the right, were the lucky pair who took us on our ride.We rode through the winding path around the lake. All we could hear were the jingle of the horse’s reins and the creaking of the sleigh.Despite several blankets and lots of layers of clothing, hats, gloves, scarves etc, we were freezing by the time we got to the turning circle at the far end of the lake. The driver joked that this was the end of the line and we had to make our own way back. Oh how we laughed (while staying firmly tucked under the blankets!)
After our ride and a very large cup of hot chocolate, we made our way down to Banff and the Sulphur Mountain Tramway. Truly stunning, but absolutely freezing.J&E.
