Jasper, Alberta, Canada (2002)

Jasper itself is not very attractive - we did not expect four highway lanes in the town center! However, Jasper is the perfect starting point for trips to Medicine Lake, Maligne Lake, and Mt Edith Cavell.

The official mascot of Jasper is a funny cartoon-like animal, presumably a bear.

Maligne Lake Boathouse, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada (2002)

One of the must-have photos for all visitors to Maligne Lake: The Maligne Lake Boathouse! A tip for photographers: Go to the Maligne Lake in the afternoon to make a photo of the boathouse. Then you get a nice full red on the roof of the boathouse. I had to shoot against the sun, and that resulted in a less-than-perfect photo. :-(

Medicine Lake, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada (2002)

Medicine Lake is situated 27 km from Jasper, and it looses its water almost completely during summer and autumn. But where does the water go? It is drained by an underground river system. Because this seemed to be mysterious, the First Nation People called the lake Medicine Lake.
