The top of the Keweenaw Peninsula allows one a broad view. The landscapeof undulating hills, ponds, fir and deciduous forests, and the coastline seems to go on forever in its beauty. In addition, Lake Superior’s vastness adds to the feeling that one can see forever.
I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape. Something waits beneath it; the whole story doesn’t show. ~Andrew Wyeth
Fall begins on the Keweenaw Peninsula's landscape.
Nestled in a valley in the Canadian Rockies, surrounded by ten towering peaks lies Moraine Lake. Crystal clear, blue-green water, trails, and spectacular glaciers beckons one to hike, canoe, kayak, picnic, take photos or just sit and soak up the beauty. Circling Moraine Lake is the Valley of the Ten Peaks, including Mt. Temple, the third tallest peak in the Canadian Rockies at 11,500 feet.
Pine and larch trees predominately decorate the slopes on the north elevation, where Mt. Temple sits; whereas less foliage resides on the craggy, glacier covered slopes on the south-eastern side of the lake.
There is something extraordinary about this lake and the mountains. There’s an emotional pull, a feeling I have when I visit. When I’m here, I feel protected and peaceful. I feel spiritual and serene.
