Maligne Lake - Jasper, Alberta, Canada

After backpacking the Skyline Trail, we hiked back to the car to unload our packs and pack our kayaks.

In Maligne Lake, the mountains fall into the lake. Glorious!

We broke for lunch on a beach...look at this place!

Self Portrait from the dry bag on my kayak.

Fisherman's Bay Campsite. Relaxing on the dock. It's not often you can read a book on a dock and stare at a glacier!

In the early morning we kayaked down to Spirit Island...before the tourists got there!

5 1/2 months pregnant and kayaking!

"How you like me now!?"

Iconic Spirit Island.

A nice family from South Carolina took this photo for us. They had the cutest grand kids...and the kids were nailing the trout!

For the amount of backcountry trips we do, we find it interesting that most of the wildlife we see is along the road.

Mama Bear and her Three Cubs!

Back to town for a few days rest!

After the sudden death of my husband 10 yrs. ago our retirement plans to travel the PNW and Canada came to a screeching halt. Thanx to your blog and many others like your, I travel vicariously through them and to many more places than would have been possible for real. Your photos are incredibly beautiful....thank you.
