Prettier than Lake Louise!! Don't miss this lake. It's iconic Canadian Rockies. If you can come early in the morning, you'll see the lake at its best and without the horrible, shocking crowds. A cloudless day makes it perfection.
My husband and I came here in July 2012. We had also visited in 2008 and one other previous trip. It's breathtaking every time.
On this 2012 visit, we rented a canoe and really enjoyed seeing the lake that way. It was new and fun for us, and we loved it. I recommend it for a splurge or change of pace.
Just remember to come early to beat the crowds. This lake has definitely already been discovered, which is unfortunate.
