The classic eh!

[–]carmium -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

Ahem. That's: The classic, eh?
One doesn't tack on "eh" to a declarative sentence. It's the equivalent of "wot?" in Britain and and "huh?" in the US.

[–].the_lens_eyed[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Bad punctuation, my bad :(

[–]carmium -1 points0 points  (0 children)

You're not alone; I'm amazed how often I see Americans being funny by "acting Canadian". And they seem to have no clue how and when it's used! "Where ya going eh." "I want some maple syrup eh." "So are you a Mountie eh."

And BTW, you're quite right; that is one of the classic shots of the Canadian Rockies. We've seen it before, but it's still nice.

Ah, the reddit lake

[–].the_lens_eyed[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ahaha I just noticed after posting this photo that there's a whole subreddit for this place

[–]413mopar 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Ooh , reddit lake! Not far from home . Cant drive there anymore . Maybe for the best. Live not too far away . Too busy in summer.

[–].the_lens_eyed[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Ahaha! Yeah as a lot of people have been talking about not being able to drive up there due to the new rules. And that's really awesome that you live in such a beautiful place! I bet the views would be great during the winters too!

[–]413mopar 0 points1 point  (2 children)

There are too many too list. Moraine was one of my faves tho. Louise is close by and just anout as nice . Peyto …..

[–].the_lens_eyed[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Cool! I have a few in my mind. The Maligne lake ( I don't think there are any hikes over there, I didn't do enough research yet) the medicine lake and the lake O'Hara is on list since years! Getting the lottery is more than or equal to winning the million dollar lottery in my opinion. I was supposed to go to Peyto lake but due to time restrictions, I wasn't able to do so.

[–]413mopar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Skoki is cool too. So many hikes.

[–]gypsy_muse 0 points1 point  (1 child)

So beautiful it’s hard to believe it’s real sigh

[–].the_lens_eyed[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I totally get it!

[–]JBread0 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Enjoy it while I'm you can, I am albertan and was just at lake louise. They are banning people from driving down in their own vehicle this year. So you won't be getting these pictures without a ton of people doing the same anymore... it's pretty but go do an adventure nearby and see astounding nature all around!

[–].the_lens_eyed[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Yeah I checked the news and articles regarding this. And when I was at Lake Moraine, there were hardly five cars and one tourist bus, so not many people. I'm planning on hiking the long trails near by the lake to get a good view of the lake. But I think it won't be happening as the area is closed off for public with own transportation. And as an Albertan, what are your favorite hikes in and around Banff? Or Jasper? I would really take some inputs as summer is right around the corner and I might go there again to spend some time with my mom and the nature.

[–]JBread0 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I rarely go to Banff or the national parks. I like to use fishing as an excuse to go exploring areas. So mostly crown land hiking through wild areas and stuff. Lots of horse and quad trails that go as far as you would ever want to walk. I know I'm being vuage, but I don't want the internet to blow up where I go. A lesser known but toursit friendly spot that I go to every year is ram falls. If your going with you mom maybe consider hiring a horse back tour through the mountains. It was 80 per person last year for a 2 hour ride. You get to see some of the less traveled areas without meting a mountaineer. Good luck and enjoy the eastern slopes, they have lots of beauty!

We are coming in a few days! Can we still drive there now or are the roads already closed? We are so excited!

[–]gwoates 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The road to Moraine Lake was always closed over winter due to avalanche danger and wild life and, starting this year, will be closed to personal vehicles all summer too. Unless you’re properly equipped and trained to cross country ski or snowshoe through avalanche terrain, you will need to come back another time to see Moraine Lake.

So beautiful.

Thanks a lot! Glad you enjoyed it!

Automatically had the song "Diamond" by All Them Witches in my head when I saw this.

Must be the music video for the song that triggered it.

[–].the_lens_eyed[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I've never heard the song. But I did now and it's a cool song! I agree with you, it has kind of similar visuals.

[–]Lowgarr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Its a great song, I stumbled on them a couple of years ago and really liked their sound.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Thank you!

[–]allhumanstogether 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Incredible shot!! Love how it isn't the standard view, you've got the fog creating an enchanting angle to it all.

[–].the_lens_eyed[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks a lot! I guess I was just lucky, at the right place at the right time :)
