In 2005, a family reunion took us to Moraine Lake for an outing. Having grown up in Alberta, I’d been there before, of course, and to Lake Louise (in my pre-digital-photography days). Having been there before, I didn’t think that much about either of them. Of course.
Pretty dramatic? Yeah.
But, you know, just two glacier-fed lakes in the Canadian Rockies.
Today I try to rectify that casually dismissive acceptance by including them in my list of national treasures.
This is one of a series on Canadian national treasures – my sesquicentennial project. They reflect people (living and dead), places and things that I think are worth celebrating about our country, and are done in no order of precedence.
