Snow at Mirror Lake - Photo of the Day - March 9th, 2011

"Snow at Mirror Lake"

A photo of Mirror Lake, above Lake Louise in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada, taken on a nice crisp spring day. Mirror Lake is accessible from the Lake Agnes Trail in Lake Louise.

As you walk along the shoreline of Lake Louise, the trail to Lake Agnes branches right just beyond the hotel, then climbs steadily through dense subalpine forest. After 1.7 kilometres (1.1 miles), the first switchback marks a break in the trees where you have a clear view down to the pale turquoise water of Lake Louise. Another one kilometre (0.6 miles) of forest-enclosed climbing brings you to Mirror Lake, a tiny lake with dark, layered cliffs of the Big Beehive looming above. The two trails leading off in opposite directions from Mirror Lake both converge at Lake Agnes.
