Photographer's Note

This is Spirit Island in Jasper National Park. The island is pretty hard to get to, being about 20km down Maligne Lake, with no road access. There is a boat tour that takes you to the island, however, they only stay at the island for 10 minutes before going back. You can also rent a canoe, but it's about 3 hours paddling each way to get there.

Maligne Lake is one of the largest glacier fed lakes in the world, with numerous glaciers around the lake. In the winter the lake is forzen and covered with about 2m of snow. In the summer the water gets all the way up to +4 degrees!
