Alberta's Glacier Lakes: Take 2
My first visit to the beautiful Canadian province of Alberta was earlier this year, in the month of May. Although it was a fantastic trip, I couldn't help but cringe when I learned that some of its most popular glacier lakes -- Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, Peyto Lake, to name a few -- thawed out and revealed their beautiful blue waters, several days after my return to the US.
Any feeling that I had "missed out" quickly faded away when another opportunity to return to Alberta this summer popped up. I couldn't wait to witness firsthand the impossibly blue waters of Moraine and Louise.
Well, I just returned from this follow-up trip, and, in my humble opinion, Alberta is one of the most beautiful places on earth. And its beautiful glacier lakes are one big reason why that is so. But you can be the judge! Please enjoy some of my favorite shots below. (Prints available here!).
