“Wait for the sun to come out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Well worth a short stop on the road to Lake Maligne, if the sun is out stop at the first pull off from the Jasper end and when the sun is out get the fantastic reflections of the surrounding mountains into your pictures

“Got the best picture of the trip here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

It was a sunny day and the mountains and sky were reflected in the lake--there is a place to pull off and take pictures.

“Pretty drive, good wildlife chances”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

Remote drive so good chance to see wildlife. We saw 2 black bears and numerous deer. We went on a rainy afternoon so the road was less travelled.

“Surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

We were pleasantly surprised and impressed with seeing this Lake in different seasons. The difference between spring and fall is amazing! Where did the water go? Be sure to stop along the way and read the explanations and take pictures! Continue on to Maligne Lake as well (even in the winter).

“No chance it will disappear any time soon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

We had been given a heads up on what to expect. The lake usually disappears during the summer, but it was so full the meadows were flooded as were the steps down to them. So we were privileged to see an unusual sight even if the weather was not very kind.
