This, this here is the place to be standing.
Banff National Park’s famous hotel Chateau Lake Louise is at least an hour or two hike away.
This picture is looking in the direction of a cup of tea at the Plain of the Six Glaciers tea house. Alas, I was looking back towards the tea house as I headed towards Mirror Lake on the Highline Trail (which runs parallel to the Plain of the Six Glaciers trail for a while).
The Highline Trail is a connector trail that spurs from the Plain of the Six Glaciers and leads to the network of trails around Lake Agnes, Mirror Lake and then to a steep but well-worn trail to Chateau Lake Louise and the Lakeshore Trail around Lake Louise.

We ended up hiking over 8 kilometers that day. If I had to do this hike again, I would have started earlier in the morning in order to have time to go around Lake Agnes.
