In the fall of 1883, three Canadian Pacific Railway construction workers stumbled across a cave containing hot springs on the eastern slopes of Alberta's Rocky Mountains. From that humble beginning was born Banff National Park, Canada's first national park and the world's third. Spanning 6,641 square kilometres (2,564 square miles) of valleys, mountains, glaciers, forests, meadows and rivers.
Moraine Lake is a glacially fed lake outside the Village of Lake Louise, Alberta. It is situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, at an elevation of approximately 6,183 feet (1,885 m). The ten mountain peaks behind the lake run along the Continental Divide, which marks the border of British Columbia and Alberta.
Banff is part of UNESCO’s Canadian Rocky Mountain World Heritage site.
