Not being prepared for the temperature drop at night we decided to cut our camping trip short. Instead of travelling and camping through the Rockies we decided to drive through Jasper to Maligne Lake, and then head for Edmonton late to sleep.
The mountains, rivers, lakes are amazing and never fail to impress. Stopping for a bathroom break we went for a short walk, finding our way to the river and a great view.
Back in the car we drove south to the turn off to Medicine and Maligne Lake.
Medicine Lake is beautiful. At the stop we learned that this lake has an underground river underneath it and only during the seasons when the water is high does the lake appear, otherwise the valley dries up.
Maligne Lake I will be posting on shortly.
A beautiful area that I look forward to exploring more.
