Moraine Lake

Moraine Lake is near Lake Louise in Banff National Park, Alberta Canada. I haven't been to enough lakes in Canada, but of those I have this one is the most beautiful. When I lived in Canada many years ago a painting of this scene was on the back of the twenty dollar bill. I always thought that was Lake Louise which you can argue is equally beautiful and a somewhat similar landscape. It's hard to impress you with how impossibly high these mountains rise above the lake, this picture does little justice to the real thing. My inadequate words aside, I'll just leave it to your imagination, because that's probably the only way to fathom the scale and majesty of this scene until you go there yourself.
