Lake Louise, Canada


There is no change of the scenes of poppy flowers, lake and glacia in front of the Fairmont Lake Louise Hotel for over fifty years.

Lake Louise is located 52 kms northwest of Banff, and located 207 kms southeast of Jasper. The town is much cozier
and less commercial than Banff; it feels like the doorway to the ruggedness of the Rockies on both sides of the Albert
-British Columbia border. Lake Louise itself has two parts: the townsite in the Bow River Valley, and the well-known
Lake itself. The town is also the starting point of the Icefields Parkway, passing, through Columbia Icefields up to Jasper.

The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is on the eastern shore of Lake Louise, Alberta. The original Chateau was gradually
built up at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century by the Canadian Pacific Railway and was thus
"kin" to its predecessors, the Banff Springs Hotel, and the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City. The Painter Wing,
built in 1913,is the oldest portion of the hotel still standing. The Mount Temple Wing, opened in 2004, is the newest
wing of the hotel and features modern meeting facilities.

The hotel was first conceived by the railway at the end of the 19th century, as a vacation destination to lure moneyed
travelers into taking trains and heading West. By the time airplanes and automobiles had displaced the trains, it had
gained sufficient renown to have a life of its own. The Canadian Pacific Railway long ago sold it to other interests.
From the start, the goal was to exploit the stunning natural beauty of the emerald-green lake and of Victoria's glacier,
which rose above it. There were many hiking courses for nature lovers. It was originally built to function only in
summer. The hotel was winterized in 1982 and now offers ski resort services during the winter months.

カナディアンロッキーの中で最も美しいと言われ、年間100万人を越える人々が訪れる湖、レイク・ルイーズ。長さ2キロ、
幅500メートル、水深90メートルでバンフ国立公園のほぼ中央に位置する。中央の奥に広がるのはビクトリア氷河で、左手に
フェアビユー山がそそり立つ。水面は季節と日光によって灰色、緑、そしてエメラルド・グリーンへと微妙に変化する。

1962年に始めてこの地を訪れたが、当時は湖畔のフェアモントホテルは夏の期間だけしかオープンしていなかった。観光客
もまばらで、沢山のポピーの花がエメラルド色の湖水に映えて本当に夢のような世界であった。ホテルは2004年に建て替え
られて昔の面影はほとんど見当たらないが、赤や黄色のけしの花のみが50年たった今も咲き誇っていた。このかけがえの
ない自然を、そのまま未来の世界に残して行きたい、そうした強い願いをいだいて、もう訪れる機会はないかもしれない、
遥か遠い思いでの地を離れた。
