Description

"Moraine Lake: Moraine Lake is reached from Lake Louise by automobile or pony. It is a lovely mountain lake lying in the "Valley of the Ten Peaks." These ten peaks, all of which are over 10,000 feet high, and the highest of which, Mount Deltaform, is 11,225 feet, encircle the eastern and southern sides of the lake, and present a serrated profile that makes a most majestic view. Only seven of these are visible in the picture."
