Jasper National Park

Maligne Lake

We stayed at Jasper National Park for two days and visited the Maligne lake and later Mt Edith cavell. Maligne lake was beautiful but somewhat underwhelming compared to other sapphire/Turquoise colored lakes we saw so far.

Edith Cavell

Next up was Mt Edith cavell. It has a hanging glacier (called Angel Glacier) and a glacier at the base called Cavell Glacier. Angel Glacier is precariously positioned and we even saw and heard small calving/cracks which sound like thunder. The year before there was a major calving which caused flash floods and closing of the area to the visitors.

cavell glacier was smaller but beautiful with its greenish waters and smoky face.
