Did you know that Lake Louise is already the third name given to the famous lake? It was first named “Ho-Run-Num-Nay” by the Stoney Nakota First Nations people which means Lake of Little Fishes. In 1882, another Stoney native guided a Canadian railway worker named Tom Wilson went to the lake who later named it Emerald Lake.
It wasn’t until two years later when it was later again renamed to Lake Louise after Princess Louise Caroline Alberta, the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria. Princess Louise was married to the Marquis of Lorne who was the former Governor General of Canada.
With its turquoise water and snow capped mountains, it’s little surprised that Lake Louise is the most photograph attraction in Canada.
What do you think about Lake Louise? Do the photos do it justice?
