Just outside of the village of Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies, 187 kilometres from where I live in Calgary, visitors can find the cold turquoise waters of Moraine Lake. If you are able to snag a parking spot (seriously, it’s really, REALLY difficult – read all about the police incident here), you can grab your backpack and take an absolutely splendid hike along densely forested switchbacks to the heavenly Larch Valley.
Cool night-time temperatures and blissful heat during the day have transformed the larches of Moraine Lake from rich green to brilliant gold – and my hubby and I were lucky enough to be able to take a day trip out there to see them last weekend. They really are jaw-droppingly- beautiful-traffic-jam-worth-it!
