Moraine Lake | Valley of Ten Peaks

Moraine Lake & Valley of Ten Peaks in Summer Morning - Banff National Park - Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada | SAMTSAI.COM

May 31, 2011: Moraine Lake in Summer Morning. I cannot believe the lake is totally covered with snow at end of May still!!!


Moraine Lake is another amazing lake in Lake Louise. It doesn’t open year round. It opens when the road connecting from Lake Louise to Moraine Lake is clear of snow, because the road is at a higher elevation and very winding in some sections.

Besides a popular tourist destination, I would say it can be a great venue for wedding ceremony and banquet if you can afford it!! :D
