5 Reasons to Hate Lake Louise

Hot off the press from Lake Louise, Alberta

As you can see from these photos, it’s a total eye-sore.

If only they offered canoes, kayaks, or trails to hike on around the lake. But there’s just nothing to do.

The area surrounding the lake is obviously lacking a good burst of color from gardens and wildflowers.

This makes it extremely inconvenient to visit. There is no big beautiful chateau and no awesome restaurants with lake views. No valet parking, and no restrooms. None at all.

Who would want to see a bright turquoise sparkling lake? Not me. I’d prefer something brown and murky. Especially for swimming.

So, to summarize, never ever visit Lake Louise, unless you are one of those weirdos who loves beautiful views, nature, fresh air, and big wonderful chateaus. Unless you are one of those freaks who loves to hike and enjoy the great outdoors. Then, in that rare case, you will fall madly in love with Lake Louise.

    But why on earth would someone want to visit such a horrible place??
