Canoes at Moraine Lake by Gordrob -- lovely tones Gord, on what I assume is a beautiful location. I was in Banff this past weekend but the road to Moraine Lake was closed. I supposed I could have walked it, but I wasn't prepared (clothing-wise) for the -20 C temperatures we had there over the past few days. Thanks also for the lovely comments about my card.
It's quite a hike from where they close the road to the lake - about 7 miles and quite a hike in elevation. Best time to visit the area is in June in the early morning or late afternoon - good chance of seeing grizzly and black bears on the road as well as hoary marmots. During the day the place is over run by tourists.
