Day 5 – July 13
Lake Loiuse, Field, Golden, Revelstoke
Williamson’s Lake Campground (4/5)
The day has started at 8 am for us – the earliest so far. After a brief breakfast we went to Lake Louise, spent an eternity trying to find a parking spot large enough to accommodate an RV our size, took a few pictures and left. Lake Louise is a typical tourist trap: though very beautiful, it’s fairly small, and very crowded. The canoe rides are $45 per person, and they even have lineups with that price. It’s worth checking out if you’re nearby, but probably not worthy a lengthy trip. Originally, the plan was to head to Jasper, but the road was closed because of the forest fires, so we decided to take a route via Golden (a definition of boring), where we stopped for groceries, and stay in Revelstoke for the night.
