Church of the Good Shepherd information
The prime disgorging point for tour buses, this interdenominational lakeside church was built of stone and oak in 1935. A picture window behind the altar gives churchgoers a distractingly divine view of lake and mountain majesty; needless to say, it's a firm favourite for weddings. Come early in the morning or late afternoon to avoid the peace-shattering masses.
Nearby is a statue of a collie, a tribute to the sheepdogs that helped develop Mackenzie Country.
