Our day of lake hunting began with this simple, stark beauty. Located less than 2 miles (or 3km) from downtown #banff
along a back road is where you’ll find Vermillion Lake. One thing to know upfront about the Banff-Lake Louise region is there’s a TON of majestic landscapes competing for your attention. To say this part of #canada
is over-stimulating (in the most decadent way) is a vast understatement. Which is what makes Vermillion so stunning...she’s not even trying to compete. As far as lakes along the Canadian Rockies go, this one is pretty unremarkable on face value, but like its counterparts compels a strong response. It’s rich in texture, colors, and contrast. It exists to highlight and compliment its surroundings, rather than define or overpower them. It’s booming with humility, and I loved that.
Shout-out to @lukekellytravels
for quickly pulling together recommendations and adding this to his list-wouldn’t have found this one without ya!
