The most spectacular route to Lake Oesa

Having mentioned that my daughter was sort of confined to Alberta this summer, I should admit that the Wiwaxy Gap trail is in British Columbia, just barelyabout 2 km southwest of Victoria Glacier, which is in Alberta.  But it’s okay because the pictures I used to paint it were taken last year.

In fact, Lake O'Hara is much less accessible to everybody this year.  Parks Canada is not operating the Lake O'Hara shuttle from the TransCanada Highway and an 11-kilometre hike is the only way in.
