Eiffel Lakes - Lake Louise – Hiking Alberta

 

Eiffel Lakes are tiny gems past Moraine Lake in The Valley of the Ten Peaks.

In early morning, a spontaneous decision is executed to seize the last good hiking day before the son and daughter-in-law return to Toronto, Ontario.  After a quick pack-up, the drive west along the TransCanada Highway proceeds expeditiously from Calgary, Alberta, Canada to Moraine Lake near Lake Louise for the spectacular hike into Eiffel Lakes.  The Eiffel Lakes trail is above and past Moraine Lake and the Valley of the Ten Peaks to the tiny but beautiful Eiffel Lakes nestled beneath magnificent, tall mountains.

Today's hike will not proceed past the Eiffel Lakes because recovery remains underway from yesterday's memorable hike of the traverse across Mount Allan on the Centennial TrailEiffel Lakes is an easy and spectacular hike.

Among the photos are excellent views of the Fay Glacier near the summit of 3,234 m (10,613 ft) Mount Fay in the Valley of the Ten Peaks.  It is too early in the season for golden Larch trees.

This day is completed with a therapeutic soak at Banff Hot Springs and a fine dinner at Tony Roma's in the Town of Banff before the return drive to Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  Just another typical day in Banff National Park.
