DCRP Review: Epson PhotoPC 3000Z - Canadian Rockies Gallery

You read the review of this camera, right? And seen the other photos, too?

I recently took a trip with my friend Amit up to the beautiful Canadian Rockies. We flew from San Francisco up to Calgary (a nice place itself), and drove out to Lake Louise, in Banff Nat'l Park. We were there for five days, and activities included lots of driving, some hiking, canoeing, laying around, and in my case, sneezing (I got sick).

We stayed at the Chateau Lake Louise, which sits right on the lake (you can see our view in the fourth picture). This is a very, very nice hotel, and it's very expensive too -- but well worth it!

I've often heard that Bora Bora is where God goes on vacation -- well, Lake Louise must be His summer home. It's absolutely stunning, and like nowhere else on Earth. Below you can relive our trip -- without getting sick!

Lake Louise, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada.

The water color you see here is like nowhere else on Earth.

Looking back towards the Chateau Lake Louise again. The view from our room!

The amazing Canadian Rockies Logs at Moraine Lake Looking down at Amit on the pile of logs. Amit still uses that "film thing" to take pictures :-) Moraine Lake, just as nice as Lake Louise, and a bit smaller.
