Moriane Lake is one of the jewels of the Rockies. Like many high mountain lakes, it’s fed by glaciers resulting in stunningly beautiful colored waters ranging from a deep robin’s egg blue to emerald green. We arrived early and launched our sturdy canoe. (This required David getting his feet wet, as the only dock on the lake is privately owned and there are few easy places to launch.) However, once on the lake, we were rewarded as there were few other canoes and the water was perfectly calm. The mountains surrounding the lake bathe it in shadow for most of the morning, so we paddled up and down the lake twice waiting for it to shine. (It’s a very small lake.) After setting the canoe back on top of the truck (not an easy task), we climbed the large pile of rocks at the end of the lake, and David took a few photos. Photos of this iconic lake are frequently seen in advertisements of Banff.
Welcome to our travel blog, a place where David and I mix our love of photography and writing. We are all travelers on this little blue planet spinning around our blazing sun in a vast universe. Travel is not just a destination, but a journey. A journey that is full ups and downs, surprises and disappointments -- it is life. We hope that you will travel with us.
