Lake O’Hara and Lake Oesa

Lake O’Hara is a region of Yoho National Park that the park service is trying to protect and keep pristine for future generations.  Thus only a few people are allowed into the area each day – reservations for the lodge must be made a year in advance and reservations to ride the bus into the Lake O’Hara region for a day hike must be made 3 months in advance.  We are lucky to be among those allowed in for 4 visits on this trip!  Our first visit was this past Thursday for a hike from Lake O’Hara to Lake Oesa.

Words just can’t describe the beauty and the grandeur of this area.  We will let the photos tell the story.
