I took a motorcycle trip to Alaska last June and stopped at Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada on the way home. I took this picture near the end of a hiking trail that starts at Chateau Lake Louise and goes to the end of the lake. I really liked the image of the canoe crossing the vertical stand of trees on the far shore.
