Lake Louise and the Big Beehive

Saturday we did the hike to the top of the Big Beehive which is the small mountain to the right of Lake Louise. The trail travels first to Lake Agnes where there is a popular teahouse, around the lake and then up many switchbacks to the flat top of the beehive.

The Big Beehive is the rounded peak to the right above the trees.

We climbed 1700 vertical feet to reach the top of Big Beehive

Note the dots on the lake which look like ants but are really canoes.

Back down to Lake Louise – the color of all of these glacial lakes changes so with the sun.
