In 1959, after operating Temple View Texaco station in Lake Louise for four years, Bill and Barbara purchased the lodge at Moraine Lake, which they owned and operated for 15 years. In 1966 they bought a second lodge at Emerald Lake, B.C. For several years the two lakes graced the backs of the Canadian $10 and $20 bills.
