Canadian Rockies Landscapes: The Mountains along Maligne Lake

After riding out of the Tonquin Valley we spent the following day touring around the Jasper area.  In the afternoon we drove up to Maligne Lake and hiked a couple of kilometers along the southeastern shoreline.

The mountains along the northern shore and down towards the far end of valley were on full display as we traveled along the trails edging the water.

Clouds, rain, sunlight and a bit of snow took turns hitting the peaks and running across the valleys.  I love this area of the park as there is a lot of change in the type of mountains and the weather often seems to be determined to put on a show across the landscape.

    • Jasper has a wildness about it that is different from Banff. I am close to Banff so I spend a lot of time there but Jasper is always a special trip. Thanks for your comments Karen.
