Moraine Lake, Alberta is the “other” lake. It is accessed off the same road as Lake Louise and is every bit as beautiful, if no more so. It’s biggest redeeming factor is that people drive right by the road to Moraine and continue on to Lake Louise. Their loss.
It is also higher in the mountain range as you can see by the snow line. I find it hard to believe, but I took this shot 10 years ago, time for a return trip.
