Lake Minnewanka was wildly put on the map by a photo bomb squirrel in 2009. Everything about the lake and surrounding areas is connected with the images of deep, dark, and awe-stricken. The lake has a deep dark crystal color. On one hand it is beautiful, but on the other hand, it looks frightening. The surrounding forests around the lacs are deep black forests.
In October 2013, some trails were blocked because of electrofishing(a scientific survey method).
A road to Two Jack Lake is barricaded for safety in autumn and winter.
Pro: Lake Minnewanka has campsites. Kayaking, bicycling, hiking, fishing, walking for meditation - recommended here. I watched a big family of mountain goats.
Con: If you like a crowded tourist attraction, this lake may make you too lonely.
