Fall Colours and Ice

The sky was to open up in the morning, but Mother Nature has her own plans when it comes to weather forecasting. We still headed toward Moraine Lake to do the Wenkchemna Pass trail. It was a cool morning, and rain drops started to fall, we still drove on. Dark clouds above us and light snow falling, we still drove on. We’re cold once we got out of the car, looking forward to hitting the switchbacks to warm up. Off we went, the sky was slowly opening up. Once we were out of the trees, beautiful views of the ten peaks surrounding Moraine Lake. Sunlight was out, but still the occasional heavy gusts of wind. We reached the pass and did not bother spending too much time there. Temperature was 3 degree and very heavy winds coming from the west. Amazing views all around, with the ruggedness of the mountains and glaciers and the softness of the fall colours form the Larch trees. Deciding what to take pictures of was easy, as we headed back to the trail head.

Until next moment,
