I came here earlier in the morning to see the glassy surface of the lake, but have to admit it was less than impressive compared to other astounding beautiful lakes in the Canadian Rockies, like Peyto, Moraine, Lake Louise, Emerald Lake in Yoho NP, even...More

The beauty of the lake is in the timing of your visit. The key tips to just amazing lake scenery if getting there on a relatively clear morning on a calm wind day. The morning sun will create great lake reflection views for you. We...More
