Description

"Lake O'Hara: Lake O'Hara is set like a jewel among the towering peaks which surround it. Its color is never constant, but changes opal-like to the touch of the wind and the shadow of clouds. There are but two ways to get to Lake O'Hara, afoot or astride a mountain-pony. No one who has made the trip has ever said the effort was not more than repaid."

Excerpt from "ACROSS CANADA BY C. P. R.", Section 5--The Canadian Rockies; booklet, McGill University Illustrated Lectures, 1928.
