Spirit Island Bound - Maligne Lake, Jasper National Park, Alberta

One of the absolute must dos for any visitor to Jasper National Park is to take a 90 minute (round trip) boat ride to see the iconic Spirit Island. The tour begins at the northern end of the 14 mile long beautiful waters of Maligne Lake. All along the shoreline of the lake are some of the most amazing mountains that the Canadian Rockies have to offer. I have taken this trip twice, and the anticipation of waiting for the departure of your scheduled boat just builds and builds. As I walked along the lake, I couldn't stop taking photos of the Maligne Lake Boat House, with the mountains off in the distance that I would be shortly seeing close up.
