Jasper and Maligne Lake – Alberta, Canada

 

Jasper Park Lodge

 

We drove into Jasper from the Icefields Parkway and checked into our hotel before driving up to Pyramid Lake and checking out the town.

I have a thing for trains

We took in the sunset over Beauvert Lake, just outside our room and then got to sleep.

The next day we tackled a short, but steep hike up to Old Fort Point and then explored the various lakes around the area.  The color of the waters are incredible.

The highlight of the day was the cruise on Maligne Lake out to Spirit Island and back.  This was one of the more beautiful sights on a trip filled with many.

The next day we would make the long drive over to Vancouver for one night and then over to Vancouver Island and Ucluelet and Tofino.
