Continuing my photo tour of Moraine Lake, in Banff National Forest, Alberta, Canada. Another view of Moraine Lake with only a few of the ten surrounding peaks.
On the right, this impressive mountain keeps a watchful eye on the serene lake.
Behind me was this 'terminal moraine.' The glacier coming down the hill deposited remnants of rock in a nice pile before receding. Probably from 1000s of years ago. The pile of dead trees in the previous photo were to the left of this pile
View from the access road, which closed the day after we returned and becomes a ski trail for the winter.
Even the simple evergreen forests of douglas fir, white spruce and pine were breathtaking!
