Later, we drove up to Lake Moraine to see what it had to offer. In a word, scenery. We took a few shots of the lake, then noticed that a lot of people seemed to be collecting at the top of a large stone pile beside the lake. On further investigation, we learned that there was a path leading up the back to scenic overlooks at the top.
atara, her uncle and I took the path to the top while her folks waited at the bottom. It was a bit of a hike for people who were already tuckered out from three very active days of exploring and hiking, and at about the 4/5 mark atara protested and sat down in the stairs, announcing that it would be a good time to get a picture of her if I felt so inclined.
The view from the top was nothing short of spectacular. I will posting more pictures once I get home and have access to a computer with more horsepower, but here is a sample of the view from the top.
We saw a bit more wildlife on our way back to the cabin at the end of the day. There was a moose by the side of the road leading out of Lake Louise, and later we saw (or atara saw, since I was driving) a family of grizzly bears (mother and two cubs) by the side of highway 1.
