“Stunning views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

Moraine Lake offers by far the best drive in lake scenery in the national park. Try and hit it on a slightly cloudy day for the best photo ops, and climb up the hill to the left of the lodge for an elevated photo!

“even if you spend 10 minutes scrambing the rock pile don't skip it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2012

It was worth fighting the traffic to get there. The "20 dollar view" is one of the best images in the entire parks system...comparable if not superior to the classic shot you will see of lake Louise.

DO IT!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2012

Looks like Tidy Bowl, given the blue color, but this is a spot to be walked around, kayaked on, and viewed from all possible angles.
