Such a magnificent experience. We were there in August and snow was still visible at the too. The view from the lake is breathtaking.

We walked about 18 km's return distance on this scramble, achieving an elevation gain of just under 1700 m's. This summit is the highest in the Banff area, at 3543 m's above sea level. Although there was a big crowd at the top - perhaps...More
