I struck gold a few years ago when I visited Alberta! Still one of my favorite trips to date. If you want an easy sightseeing location, definitely check it out. We landed in Calgary and drove all the way to Lake Louis (famous for it's sediment-pasted turquoise water) and the giant glaciers that tower above it. We went on a ski lift on an adjacent mountain when we took this photo: To the middle-right is the lake, and you can see the hotel in front of it (which is actually quite large). According to guides, the glacier that can be seen hanging over the lake is 100 times the height of the hotel! At night, chunks of the glacier fall off the cliff face and almost sound like thunder.
