Peyto Lake, Banff National Park: 31 reviews and 51 photos
The stormy snow clouds kept moving in, obscuring all but the brilliant blue lake and half of the mountainside across the glacier cut valley. For a brief time it felt as if we were alone in the universe. Just us, the mountain and the lake.
Of course, the moment was all too brief as two van loads of fifteen year old campers scampered to the overlook bellowing about the latest trends in hip-hop. But as they turned the corner and caught sight of the lake--they too were momentarily stunned into silence by the beauty of the tableau before them (I think their silence lasted maybe thirty seconds--such is the attention span of teens).
Address: Ice Field Parkway # 93 Highway.
Directions: On Higway 93 turn off to Bow summit to Peyto Lake Viewpoint, it is 190 Km from Jasper.
