A few weeks ago, I hiked near Lake Louise to the Lake Agnes Tea House. This 2 hour hike takes you high above Lake Louise and offers stunning views, as you can see below.
The Lake Agnes Tea House itself was one of the highlights of the hike, due to its history. The tea house has been operating since 1905, and does not have any electricity. The staff live at the tea house when it is open from June to October. A helicopter brings in some of the dry goods at the start of the season, while staff hike fresh supplies up 2-4 times per week!
