Maligne Lake and Finally Bear Photos

26 June 2014

We drove back to Jasper today in order to visit Maligne Lake area 27 miles south of Jasper. On the way made another stop at Robson and had lunch. We also took some photos of Robson River which flows into the Fraser.

  We visited Maligne Lake and Canyon 1998. Due to lateness of day and long drive back to Valemount, we only visited the Lake. I included pictures from the Canyon 1998 trip and urge you to stop when visiting the area.

Maligne Lake has beautiful mountain and glacier views. You have the option of taking a boat trip on the lake pass Spirit Island.We did this on first trip. The lake is 14 miles long and 318ft at its deepest.

On the drive we stopped for a photo op at Medicine Lake. Interesting fact about this lake is it is fed by the Maligne Riverwhich, for some reason does not seem to flow out, yet the lake disappears in the summer. All that is left in mid autumn is a thin channel that disappears into the shoreline.
The granite mountain view are awesome.
