Paddling Maligne Lake
Maligne Lake is the largest body of water in Jasper National Park. Long and thin, it stretches for 14 miles in a narrow valley between Rockies mountain ranges at an elevation of roughly 5,500 feet. The name "Maligne" may have been given to the lake -- along with a river, mountain and other places in the area -- by French explorers; the word means "wicked" in French.
The two large peaks here you can see Mt. Charlton (left of center) and Mt. Unwin (right of center). Near the far left in the back is Mt. Warren.
