Not the usual view of Joffre Lake. Most are satisfied with the 5 Kilometer and 400 meter hike up to the top lake to view the surrounding mountains and glacier. This view was captured from about halfway up to the summit of Mount Tszil while hiking along the moraine.
When a trip to Joffre Lakes isn’t quite spectacular enough, head up to Mount Tszil and beyond. You can circumnavigate this small glacier, but walking up to the edge and touching the ice provides a restful minute.
