Hiking The Shore

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 23 October 2019 in Landscape & Rural.

Moraine Lake, Banff NP, Canada.
The rain held off and we spent a fun afternoon walking and taking photos alone the shore with the blue water and impressive mountains before us.

Due to bear activity some of the trails accessed near Moraine Lake have seasonal restrictions to maximize safety. During these times it is mandatory that hikers travel in a tight group of four or more. Occasionally trails may be closed off completely. It is always best to check ahead with Parks Canada for the current trail conditions.

Great place for hiking. Bears are a good reason to be careful. Bears have been organized in Finland to build stalls in the woods that may be hidden from moths. Bears are lured to the scene by the jewels they come to eat.

I carried pepper spray but the only thing I saw on my last trip to BC was that they do $%&* in the woods :)

A splendid view with great height captured here! The entire frame is filled with no negative space. Glad that you made it through without any bear encounters. :-)

@Steven: Thanks. We did carry bear spray and were happy to not have to use it. We did encounter bears later.

Your series on this area has been great, what prompted you to visit this place of wide open spaces?

24 Oct 2019 1:00am

@Jerry: Thanks. Banff has always been on my "bucket list" but my bucket is getting rusty. ;-) We decided we'd better go, so planned the trip for September, and added Jasper NP. We LOVED it!
