A goodly hike: from Lake Louise, take the trail to Lake Agnes. Stop at the teahouse for apple crumble and black currant tea. (Avoid the squirrels.) Depart for the Big Beehive, and do not despair at the steep, but mercifully short, switchbacks. Take the side trip to the top of the hive--yes, that's it, pictured below--then head back toward Louise down the other side of the mountain. Chuckle to yourself at the suckers who are trudging up the harder way.
