MORAINE LAKE, BANFF NATIONAL PARK
It is a scene made famous the world over by artists and photographers alike -- Moraine Lake and the awe-inspiring Valley of the Ten Peaks. It was once featured on the back of the Canadian twenty dollar bill and has been photographed by Ansel Adams and painted by the Group of Seven. For me, it's my most popular scenic greeting card, but it's also a place I love to visit early in the morning before anyone else gets there. It reminds me why I came here in the first place -- to experience the spectacular beauty and stillness of the Canadian Rockies.
