RE: Looking for advice for a hiking/hotel trip in mid August and a good local trail guide book
You can check out my Banff National Park page for places to stay.
For upscale accomodations (I do like my jacuzzi tub and 300 count sheets at the end of a hard day on the trail) check out the utterly rustic elegant Post Hotel in Lake Louise (www.theposthotel.com) And, they have a pub and elegant lounge to enjoy your beer.
For downscale accomodations: HI Lake Louise Hostel.
For good hikes, purchase: Don't Waste Your Time in the Canadian Rockies by Kathy and Craig Copeland (you can order it on Amazon)
The Moraine Lake area requires that you hike in a group of 6 or more. you can usually pick up with other hikers.
e-mail me if you want more info, and have Fun!!!!
