MORAINE LAKE IS STUNNING

 
 This is another lake vying for the distinction
of being the most beguiling body of water on planet Earth.
It really is hypnotic in its quiet beauty and brilliant green colors.


Emerald Green and only 12 kilometers from Lake Louise this place is very special. The access road is paved and it is about a 20 minute drive from the Lake Louise road. Located in the shadows of the "Valley of the 10 Peaks" you can see the evidence of colossal glacial activitiy.  Rocks, forestal debris and silt are piled high. A Moraine, after which this lake is named, is a mass or ridge of rocks deposited at the foot or side of a glacier after being carried down or pushed aside by the incredible weight of the glacier.

THE ICEFIELDS PARKWAY
The main highway between Jasper and Banff is called the ICEFIELDS PARKWAY because of the many glaciers (over 100), hugging the mountains, that can be seen as you drive the paved highway. It is a stunning drive with many lakes that are incredible colors of blue and green, seen nowhere else. Drive by a triple continental divide and learn about "Rock Flour". This is possibly the most unforgettable mountain trip you will ever make.
