Valentine's day at Lake Minnewanka

We spent Valentine's Day with my MIL at Lake Minnewanka and Banff National Park. Since she was only here for 3 days and 2 nights [actually it was really just 1 full day], we all decided to take the day off at school and at work on Valentine's Day.

I've already shared a lot of pictures from Banff, so here are some pictures from Lake Minnewanka.



I saw this 'heart' in the middle of the frozen Lake Minnewanka.



Here's the boat house in the middle of the frozen Lake Minnewanka surrounded by the Canadian Rockies.
The heart above is just a few meters on the left of this boat house.



Here's the boat house taken in the summer, from a different angle.

Hi Linnor,
Yes, it was very cold indeed... but we enjoyed the day immensely.

Hi Girlie and Verns,
Thanks!

Hi Ann,
The heart is carved just a few meters from the boat house.

Heart of Rachel said...

A heart in the middle of a frozen lake ... how romantic! It almost seems like a nice idea for a movie scene. Glad you enjoyed your Valentine's Day.

Bugsy said...

That lake looks wonderful! Was the heart purely coincidental?

Analyse said...

yay, lamig!

Hi Rach,
This picture was actually taken inside the car... its a good thing the road was a little deserted at that time, so hubby stopped in the middle of the road so I can take this picture.

Hi Bugsy,
We saw it by chance... Hubby is not romantic enough to do that for me... hahaha...

Hi Analyse,
Yup, super lamig, that's why this picture was taken inside the car! Buti na lang malinaw yun picture.

evi said...

it looks like somewhere in alaska. and that house in the middle of nowhere is similar to where they sit all day trying to catch a fish just like in the movies.

Raquel said...

JO said...
