Lovely in the Morning

Need to arrive before the sun comes up and casts alpine glow over the mountain. There are great reflections in the lake. . Just be sure you don't drive past

Coming back from Jasper or Columbia Icefield, make a quick stop for excellent pictures and a quick rest.

Closed this late in the season but we snuck in with the maintenance guys. A short walk from the car park gives you a stunning view.

This lake does not attract the coach parties so it is much more peaceful that many of the other lakes. Fascinating reflections so a great place for photographs. Nearby Lake Hector is also well worth a visit. We really enjoyed our stops at these lovely lakes.

Just north of Lake Louise on Icefield Parkway. Easy parking and picnic area for walk by the lake especially in the fall>

A nice, lovely and uncrowded lake - a rarity in these parts during 'prime time'. It was great to just take it in. Seems easier to get to when heading south on the IP.

almost overlooked this but the view drew me in. worth the stop if weather is co-operating, take a bit of a hike along the roadway to get the good angle, morning will give the best light for photos

The lake is on your left when traveling from Banff to Lake Louise. We found it covered with floating damp in the early morning.
