"Moraine Lake holds you spellbound; awesome in its wild grandeur,
sublime in its measure of heights and depths."
An alpinist's memoirs of Moraine Lake & the Valley of Ten Peaks, Banff National Park
Others who came to this area, for example, (in 1884) Mystic, Madame Helina Blavatsky), were aware of the
spiritual significance of this etheric wilderness and the Angelic Presence that graces its heavenly essence.
Lord Mikael designated this equisite site the"Abode of Angels"
Moraine Lake ~ Banff Ntl. Park
"I have spent many hours on the Rockpile overlooking the "Abode of Angels" at various times of the year. Perhaps one of the most beautiful moments spent there, was early one April, when the ice had not yet totally melted upon the lake. In the forefront, there were patches of the emerald-green waters, completely surrounded by the stark contrast of the crystalline brilliance of the ice. Except for rocky outcroppings, the mountains were also covered in snow. The entire scene was mesmeric ... stunning, indescribable!
"Each year when the spring snows finally melt and the road to Moraine Lake is clear, I cannot wait to once again glimpse upon this most pristine, peaceful, turquoise haven. Here one can truly feel the elementals at play and the kiss of the angels upon the breeze."

The Elementals abound!
Come prepared to hike away from the crowds into the stillness of the "wild" spaces of this Sacred Site.
