Just Jasper (Canadian Rockies Trip Part III)



This is the third installment in my Canadian Rockies Trip 2018 series.  Be sure to read my posts on Banff, and Yoho and Kootenay.  In this post, I will share photos I took in Jasper National Park.





This is a view of Waterfowl Lakes along the Icefields Parkway.



The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge awaits!



The lobby of the Fairmont has a mid-century feel.



The main lodge almost looks Polynesian to me.

Lac Beauvert Through the Trees

Heading down to Lac Beauvert.



The lake in the afternoon.

Sunset at Lac Beauvert

Looking even more beautiful at sunset.

Maligne Lake is a highlight of Jasper.







Maligne Lake Boat House

The oft-photographed boat house.

The Beauty of Maligne Lake

Look at that turquoise blue water!



A boat cruise on Maligne Lake offers you an opportunity to get lots of photos.



A dramatic view of a glacier.



Approaching Spirit Island.  It takes the better part of a day to canoe out here!

Docked near Spirit Island.


Spirit Island

Spirit Island is sacred to the indigenous people, who have been coming here for centuries.  No one is allowed on Spirit Island for that reason.





Our tour guide jokingly told us this was the Maligne Lake Golf Course.



Views along Maligne Lake Road.





Another view on Lac Beauvert.

Stanley, the hotel mascot.



I didn't make use of the pool, but I got a photo of it.



The geese everywhere reminded me of my college days in Oswego, NY.



Jasper has lots of waterfalls.  This is Athabasca Falls.





Another view along the Icefields Parkway.

Nearby, goats were enjoying the salt licks!




Goats Love Salt

Sunwapta Falls

Next up was Sunwapta Falls.



Medicine Lake

On the drive back to the hotel, a stop at Medicine Lake allowed me to take this photo.



I took this photo near Columbia Icefield.

Stay tuned for my next (and final) post in this series, with photos I took in the Lake Louise area!
