Maligne Valley

We made it to the Maligne Valley just outside of Jasper by late afternoon, and our first stop of the day was at the Maligne Canyon. The canyon was named for the french word for “evil” as a missionary had a hell of a time getting his horse across the river. After seeing the river, all I could think was NO SHIT. It was pouring down rain, but the canyon was gorgeous.

We drove further south and saw a lot of elk and another bear! We stopped at Medicine Lake which was a super turquoise in the rain.

We also went all the way to Maligne Lake, but the weather was crap, so everything was pretty gray which was a bummer. I guess I will just have to come back one day!

We spent the night in Valemount which was a very pretty drive. On our way back to Jasper on Wednesday morning, it wasn’t raining and the view at Moose Lake was breathtaking. I pretty much gasped and screeched the entire time we were driving next to it. My dad really appreciated that.
