Lost Lake
Banff, Alberta
January 13, 2001

We decided that finding Lost Lake on snowshoes was a worthy objective, although we relied on GPS to locate it. Lost Lake can be reached by a trail from HWY 1 in the summer, but in the winter there is no place to park. For our snowshoe trip, we parked on HWY 93 and headed west. After having lunch on the west shore of Lost Lake, we went south to Missing Lake. After that we headed back. Lost Lake is about 8 km northwest of Lake Louise.
