Lake Louise, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada 01

Description : In the fall of 1883, three Canadian Pacific Railway construction workers stumbled across a cave containing hot springs on the eastern slopes of Alberta,s Rocky Mountains. From that humble beginning was born Banff National Park, Canada,s first national park and the world,s third. Spanning 6,641 square kilometres (2,564 square miles) of valleys, mountains, glaciers, forests, meadows and rivers, Banff National Park is one of the world,s premier destination spots.

Known to the Stoney Indians as - Lake of the Little Fishes - Lake Louise was named in 1884 in honour of Princess Louise Caroline Alberta, daughter of Queen Victoria.
