Lake Louise, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada 02

Description : The body of water that the Stoney Indian people knew as Ho-run-num-nay, the - Lake of the Little Fishes, lies in a valley close to some of the higher peaks in the Canadian Rockies. The first non-native to behold it was Tom Wilson, who - led by a Stoney guide - reached its eastern shore in 1882.

The completion in 1885 of a transcontinental line on the Canadian Pacific Railway route, along with the construction in 1890 of the first commercial accommodation at Lake Louise, attracted increasing number of visitors. The Lake Louise area became an international destination, largely due to promotion by the CPR.
