Photo Story: Lake Moraine
This picture is of Lake Moraine, located in the beautiful Banff National Park in Canada.
Moraine Lake is a glacially fed lake situated at an elevation of over 6100 feet. It was our first time here even though my husband and I almost decided to get married there – 2 years before.
Unfortunately, the place gets super crowded during summers and is very difficult to find parking, let alone arrange for a wedding paraphernalia.
So long story short – we got married at a lesser known lake (Two Jack Lake) at Banff.
But decided to see the beautiful Lake Moraine for ourselves to celebrate our wedding anniversary. So, when we finally visited Moraine Lake – it was double special.
We visited the lake when Canada was celebrating its 150th birthday in 2017. Entry to the park was free, the lake grounds were not super crowded – so a great WIN.
We were mesmerised by the mighty Rockies and the lovely turquoise colour of the lake.
I love how the canoes are placed by the bank – it adds colour and makes this photo – all bright and happy.
My husband and I sat here, together holding hands, admiring the mountains and enjoying the cool breeze. And can you believe this picture was taken at 08:00 pm on July 1st?
We celebrated our 1st marriage anniversary by this lake and it will be forever special.
Moraine Lake is a lake in Banff National Park, 14 kilometres outside the Village of Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada.
It is situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, at an elevation of approximately 1,885 m. The lake has a surface area of 50 hectares.
The lake, being glacially fed, does not reach its crest until mid to late June. When it is full, it reflects a distinctive shade of blue.
The colour is due to the refraction of light off the rock flour deposited in the lake on a continual basis.
Banff National Park is Canada‘s oldest national park and was established in 1885.
Located in the Rocky Mountains, 110–180 kilometres west of Calgary in the province of Alberta.
Banff encompasses 6,641 square kilometres of mountainous terrain, with numerous glaciers and ice fields, dense coniferous forest, and alpine landscapes.
