This was my last day in Lake Louise - I was moving to Banff next. Before that though, one of the hikes I was really looking forward to was this day: Sentinel Pass and the Valley of the Ten Peaks. This being the Lake Louise area, there were crowds particularly at the Moraine Lake trailhead but even at Sentinel Pass too. There were older folks hiking up the switchbacks too (and there were a lot of switchbacks at the beginning).
Past the initial ascent, the crowds thinned out a bit, but this was still the most people I've seen on a trail so far this trip. In some ways that's reassuring, but it's not as quiet as on the other trails. In the end, that doesn't really matter because the scenery was incredible.
The impromptu Little Beehive hike was worth of all the of leg workout it took. The views were great, but the mountain goat close-up was really memorable.
After descending back to Lake Louise, I departed to Banff and checked in to lodging there for the last leg of my trip.
