The Lake Agenes hike is one of the most popular in the Canadian Rockies. There is a tea house - you know for snacks ... and tea. The hike to Lake Agnes is not particularly interesting. You get to see Mirror Lake and the Big Beehive from the base. My suggestion is to hike to one or both of the Beehives and get a great view of Louise and Agnes! I've never hiked to the Devil's Thumb, but that is even a greater elevation and photos I have seen are impressive!
On this day in early June, the sky was full of clouds and threatening rain. Agnes was rough enough to tip a canoe. (Long exposure brings balance to the world!)
