Natalia and I made it to the Lake Louise Ice Magic Festival again this year. Here are
some photos from our fun trip.

Natalia really likes to have a room with a view of the lake. This is the view from our room looking
down to the ice carvings as well as the skating rink. We had skied at Lake Louise earlier in the
day and then motored on up to the Chateau.

The Chateau always commissions a cool palace ice sculpture on the lake surface.

Here is Natalia skating with the Victoria Glacier just visible behind her.

Natalia enjoys being out on her skates.

Natalia with Fairview Mountain behind her and the Fairmont ice carving behind her too. I'm sure there's
a commercial for the hotel just waiting here.

We had a couple take our photo.

I took this photo for Natalia's sister Donni. The best kind of cats are the ones that don't shed.

The theme this year was of Fantasy so the dragons got a lot of play.

These carvings I thought were quite unique.

If you see an ice carving of a bear with a fish in its mouth, you must ride it.

Natalia and I went for a cross country ski up the Fairview loop.

Natalia likes to pose in odd ways. Here she is in front of Fairview Mountain.
