Photographer's Note

This is my first post from a recent trip to the Lake O'Hara region of Yoho National Park. This is a hidden gem, wich alpine scenary that is second to none. The reason it's hidden is that Lake O'Hara is a limited access area. To get there you have to make a reservation, and the number of visitors is strictly limited. Lake O'Hara has been preserved as a wilderness area, with unspoiled beauty. Most Canadians are not even aware of Lake O'Hara, being much more familiar with Lake Louise or Morainne Lake. Lake O'Hara is actually in the adjacent valley from Lake Louise, with Mount Victoria sitting between the two lakes.

Of all of the places I've visited, this may be the most beautiful, both in the large and spectacular things like the mountains, and in the small and intimate things, like the flowers, streams and tiny lakes (like the one in this shot). Although I was there for only a day I took so many good shots that I'll be posting them as a travelogue, called "24 Hours at Lake O'Hara".
