Great Spot, Get there Early

Really beautiful spot for a sunrise photo but make sure you get there early. It can get really crowded with people trying to get their perfect shot. I'd score it a 5 but cloud cover was really low when we went so I couldn't get the full shot of the mountain but definitely a solid location.

Worth the Challenge

This one was a tough one, especially the last mile and a half. For someone coming from Florida, the altitude definitely had me feeling winded. We were there on a weekday in mid-September and the trail still had a solid flow of people on it. There was moments when we were by ourselves but it was usually only 3-4 minutes before we passed someone coming down or going up. The glacier is totally worth the hike though.

Awesome hike

Started out really flat and easy from the Fairmont Chateau but got progressively more difficult. The teahouse was a welcome rest. We had to wait for a bit to get a table but it was worth it!

Better that I Imagned

I proposed to my girlfriend here at the end of a week long trip visiting several US national parks. We finished the trip in Banff. Photography at Moraine Lake was the reason we planned the trip and it did not disappoint. Even though it was 30 degrees, seeing this gorgeous natural wonder lived up to every expectation I had.
