Trash The Lens

Journeys and photos

Lower Consolation Lake

I guess anyone at least mildly interested in Canadian Rockies knows of Moraine Lake. After all, it features on virtually all postcards and even had an appearance on Canadian $20 bills in the ’70s. It’s really beautiful with its emerald green water and the surrounding peaks, but unfortunately it’s swarming with tourists. There’s a huge parking lot for buses just beside it, and everyone wants to take the “my smiling face in front of a famous place” photo. This sort of spoils it for me.

Take care not to get eaten by the bears while you go there!
