Jasper: Maligne Lake

Nothing says "Canada" quite like a turquoise lake set in the pristine Rockies. That and Kermit Maynard dressed in full Mountie attire...

Yuko and I visited Maligne Lake in Jasper on what was one of the clearest days in years. The weather topped 32°C and the lake was like glass.

We took a boat out to Spirit Island (so-called because as one story suggests it's where the bootleggers stashed their spirits during Prohibition) and then enjoyed afternoon tea at the nearby Chalet.

On the way back to Edmonton we saw this young bear cub foraging alone along the highway...
