Before we begin with our Christmas day activities, we just had to post this picture. Spot the Brit (one of our visitors), desperate to get out in the lovely white powdery snow at every opportunity!We started our Christmas Day with a hearty breakfast at Poppy's Brasserie, followed by a stroll out onto the frozen Lake Louise.
We then went for a walk in one of our favourite places, Johnston Canyon. We have posted pictures of Johnston Canyon in the winter before, but the sheer beauty and strangeness of this place in the winter-time never fails to amaze us.
On the drive down to the Banff townsite, we were lucky enough to spot this herd of Elk on the frozen Vermillion Lake.We decided to take a drive around the picturesque Minnewanka Loop and as the evening started to come upon us, we were treated to the most lovely Christmas Day sunset.We droke back through the Banff Townsite to look at all the pretty Christmas decorations, all ready for our Christmas Dinner back at Lake Louise.J&E.
