Natural landscapes: the ‘consolation’ of autumn


An easy hike from renowned Moraine Lake in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, hikers are rewarded with two alpine lakes (Lower Consolation Lake can be seen here), a glacier hanging off Quadra Mountain (on the right) and adjacent Mt. Bident. The glowing orange is from larch trees on the slopes of Panorama Ridge.
This is a truly astounding part of God’s Banff National Park cathedral – even in the snow that started falling on our way back to the parking lot.  🙂
