Moraine Lake and the Valley of the Ten Peaks, Banff National Park
Beneath the third highest mountain in the beautiful Canadian Rockies lies Canada’s most picturesque lake – the dazzling Moraine Lake located in Banff National Park.
As a star attraction in Canada’s world famous Banff National Park, this stunning turquoise lake is surrounded by the dramatic Valley of the Ten Peaks, an extraordinary range of steep rocky mountains that flow into the glacially-fed lake.
With views like that, it’s no surprise that this fairy tale landscape has become the default background to many personal computer desktops (it’s actually one of Windows 7′s backgrounds in the “Canada” series).
Fun Fact: Moraine Lake graced the reverse side of the 1969 and 1979 issues of the Canadian twenty dollar bill.
