No other place in North America has the variety of landscapes and wildlife that you find in the Canadian Rockies. Although the largest areas of the four national parks here are roadless wilderness, many of their most beautiful features are easily accessible by road and by trail. Many of the best places to set up your tripod are just off the tourist paths. Here are the details on Moraine Lake, my favorite, and where to find the elusive wildlife--the mountain goats, bears, big horn sheep, elk, moose, and more. Drive right up to the edge of a glacier and to the edge of some of the most beautiful alpine lakes you will ever see. Find easy trails to panoramic overlooks above alpine lakes, glaciers, and waterfalls. Find mountain landscapes more precipitous and more spectacular than any you will find south of here.
This issue follows a route north from Banff National Park, along the Icefield Parkway to Jasper National Park and Maligne Lake plus Spirit Island.
