The historic Curly Phillips Boathouse floating nicely below Leah Peak on a windy day. Taken on last day of the season at Maligne Lake.

"Donald Nelson "Curly" Phillips was a Canadian guide, outfitter, entrepreneur, and explorer who was a part of many pioneering expeditions in the northern Canadian Rockies in the early twentieth century. He settled in Jasper, Alberta, and was involved in the development of mountain tourism in the region.

He built the historic boathouse in 1928 to accommodate the guests of his hunting and fishing trips. To boost his business, he raised the Maligne Lake rainbow trout, which he transported in barrels to Maligne Lake. Until his sudden death in an avalanche in 1936, he lived and dwelt in the boat house, which is now run by the Maligne Lake Tours." Wiki

Have a fabulous Friday and wonderful weekend!

I believe that is Mt. Edith Cavell (please correct me if not so) rising prominently above the Athabasca River as viewed from Kerskelin Goat Lick on the Icefields Parkway. For mountain lovers in north america it is hard to top this scenic drive between Lake Louise and Jasper.

Your comments, faves and suggestions are appreciated!

Happy Friday!

Some fellow photographers are set up on this popular bridge catching some of this lovely sunrise. The bridge provides easy and safe crossing to the island, which has many picnic areas and wonderful views of Pyramid Mountain. A special place indeed.
Another view in comments.

I'm going to be out and about for a bit. Time to load up some memory cards.

As always thanks for taking a look. Always appreciated!

I doubt anyone can stand here taking in this natural beauty and not be transfixed and forever moved. I sure was......I'll never forget how I felt.

Maligne Lake is the largest natural lake in the Canadian Rockies. Ringed by snow-and-ice-capped mountains, the 13.7 mi (22 km) long lake stretches past serene Spirit Island right to the melt-water channels of Coronet Glacier.
The colour of the water is different at Spirit Island than where cruises depart at the Maligne Lake docks. The further south on the lake you travel, the closer you get to glaciers, and the more emerald-coloured the water becomes due to the presence of rock flour from the glaciers.

Maligne Lake was originally known as "Chaba Imne" (Beaver Lake) by the Indigenous people who lived in Jasper. In 1907 Mary Schaeffer, a wealthy Quaker from Philadelphia, learned of the mysterious lake. Following a map obtained from Samson Beaver, Mary explored the valley and lake and later wrote about her adventures, making the area a popular tourist attraction in years to follow. She called the box canyon where it sits “the Hall of Gods”. In comparing it to another place she knew well, she said “If Lake Louise is a pearl, Maligne is the entire pearl necklace.”

The first rays of the day light the top of Jasper's Pyramid Peak.

Shortly after this shot was taken another shooter walked out on the rocks blocking more sunrise shots from this perspective. Some people....

Thanks for taking a look! Always appreciated!
