Although we are Sunday, there is not many people on the roads, perfectly tags, I meet a few joggers and cyclists, I’m alert and for real, I sing !! In Vancouver, I found that there were a lot of people talking all alone, yelling, I had taken for « not very clear » and he seems to me that there were many, in Actually they were perhaps rock !! But I wanted to see Maligne Lake is about 50km. At this time of year, no bus and not enough people for a ’round. « So I decided to hitchhike. I’ll walk to the fork in the road, knowing that Maligne Lake is an ass -of-sac, and a car runs every 5 minutes or so.
Too strong, 3rd stopps car and type quite nicely to post a detour me Maligne Canyon, the lake is still 45km but think this is a good place to find a car.
I’ll take a look at the canyon asssez quickly because I do not want to risk missing my shot. The canyon is great, narrow and deep, I have almost giddy on the first deck. The walls are all smooth and rounded, deep, snow.
I go back on the road to wait for a car to keep me company, 3 hinds graze quietly. These wild animals are not at all impressed by the passing car or by me l`autre side of the road, L`une d`entre they look at me from time to time anyway.
A few minutes after I am taken by the people of Vancouver, very friendly, and in the end I spend half the day with them.
We discover a first lake: Medicine Lake, and it is very surprising, because it is almost dry. In fact, the water flows into the sub-soil from underground channels. It’s a lake in the summer, from the middle of spring, when snowmelt brings more water than that which flows into the ground.
The lake is still my line I. We see a bit of thaw on the edge and you can walk partly on the beach on a path for a short distance on the other side of the lake or youth is still thick. The site is beautiful. There is a house to rent boats, canoes in the ice and snow, a bit surreal !!
By the way, how do we know that a bear nearby? The number of cars stopped on the road.
