From Lake Louise proceed northwest on hwy 93 (Icefields Parkway) to Waterfowl Lakes on the left side. Park in deep snow on the left side and hike in about 1.5 miles to the Mistaya river and Mt. Chephren straight ahead. See Nat Geo Maps for Jasper South and Banff North.

-15 degrees farenheit was a personal record for me and I was forced to operate the camera controls with mittens. The view was spell binding in a way that is not easy to describe. The moon was setting behind Mt. Chephren and casting search light like beams above it while a halo of light was encircling the mountain. What I was witnessing was an atmospheric phenomenon. Stars were still shining through the thick atmospheric conditions.
