Started at Narada Falls, followed Narada Ralls trail north to Stevens canyon road. Occasional ice/snow patches on trail but trail easy to follow. Followed Stevens Canyon road around to Reflection Lakes. Occasional 'black' ice on roadway requiring us to use shoulder of road to continue. Ice/snow piled along side curb at Reflection Lakes. At far eastern corner, followed trail to find a sunny view of Lake Louise below us for lunch. Went back trail to Far Away rock, still occasional ice/snow patches on trail with plain trail in between. found 'High Lakes' trail to return to Lakes trail. continued to encounter ice/snow patches along on trail. Made it back to car with no one slipping!
