Our trip from Maligne Canyon then took us toward Maligne Lake. On the way we passed by a lake, which all but vanishes durning the warm summer, not because of evaporation or run-off into a river (there are none), but from underground waterways. As you can see by the surrounding mountains, they are made not of granite, but of a much softer limestone, which leads to the dramatic deep gorge of the canyon. Then it was up to Maligne Lake, which is just a marvelous, and peaceful place to hang out, and is surrounded by wonderful and abundant wildlife. Then it was back to the Athabasca River cabins, where we encountered this water-loving Golden Retriever, who was just entranced by squirrels. Ah, it was a most peaceful day.
