A view of Lake Louise and the Fairmont Chateau from Fairview Mountain, June 8, 2008.  All the canoes were heading back to cover as a spring shower was approaching.

Mt. Richardson, Mt. Catarack and Mt. Redoubt are a few of the peaks in the background.  All of the view is of the Banff National Park of Canada.

More beautiful pictures of Large things can be enjoyed by visiting Thursday Challenge hosted by Dale.
