Ascent Trip Report

We drove up to Moraine Lake very early to get parking and take photos of Moraine Lake around the time of sunrise--highly recommended. Then we decided to hike to Eiffel Lake, 7mi, 1500'. It started to rain and only got worse, so we decided to turn around after we saw the lake from up on the trail. Good choice as the lightning and thunder started when we were safely off the exposed slope and into the forest. Not our favorite hike, but still pretty.
