Lake Agnes Teahouse

10.5 km (roundtrip from general parking area),  415m elev gain
Imagine starting a trail at 11:30am in Lake Louise, getting easily parked (even with car numbers limited to 100) and not finding it to be all that busy.  I don't know what it's usually like in the summer but this was magnificent.  Sunshine, heat, happy hikers, blue lakes, mountains. 
The trail starts with a beautiful walk around the edge of Lake Louise.  Bonus!  We passed that tempting chair just as the Agnes trail splits off to the right.
After two long switchbacks through trees, we found the snow.  Being a heavily worn trail, this wasn't a problem other than a couple of slides.  Mirror Lake is the reward for the climb.  

It really opens up after the lake, views down into the valley then this stunning waterfall.  It probably has a name but I don't know what it is.

The waterfall is tipping directly out of Lake Agnes, which is reached via a wooden staircase.  She's still quite frozen on June 12th.  Gorgeous.
