Driving south from Jasper you come to the Trans-Canada
Highway (Highway 1) and just before you come to Lake Louise is the
turnoff east to beautiful Moraine Lake.
Located in the shadows of the "Valley of the 10 Peaks"
you can see the colossal glacial activitiy as 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.
