Tempted to compare beauty with Lake Louise but not possible. Each has its own compelling vistas and both hold special memories for me. We experienced snow gently falling in August as we stood on the shore looking up at the peaks hugged by fluffy gray & white clouds

Loved the beauty of Moraine Lake and the peace and tranquility, even though there seemed to be lots of cars there.It is a nice drive as well.There is a lovely little hotel with a gift shop and restaurant.There are canoes as well.

This is what gives the Canadian rockies' lakes their colour, that glacier made rock flour suspended in the green/blue water

Absolutely stunning. And to think we almost didn't go there. Excellent hiking as well. It's a must visit.
