When visiting Lake Louise and looking out over the lake, make sure you look up to see what remains of Victoria Glacier. The views are spectacular. While we were visiting the lake was still frozen and the mountains were covered in snow. Just a magical place.

The Victoria Glacier is a sight to see as you view the beautiful Lake Louise. I always remember the name because of my own name which is Victoria, so I think it quite an honor.

I may be confused, but the map accompanying this location doesn't appear to be Victoria Glacier. I know it to be above Lake Louise, and it has radically receded in the last 20 years. Still, it can be viewed in winter with some semblance of its former beauty.
