These beautiful ice and snow formations were found on Medicine Lake in the winter and they make this lake scene both unique and enthralling at the same time. Medicine Lake is located on Maligne Lake Road in Jasper National Park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, Alberta.

Ice and snow formations on any surface are unique and they can form in to channels such as these ones when the weather is cold enough and the build up of ice and snow continues to freeze together. It is an example of art in nature and almost looks like they have been placed there deliberately, but they are nature's way of showing what designs it can accomplish.

Jasper National Park is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks UNESCO World Heritage Site, so all of the land is protected and cannot be developed for any reason. Alberta is famous all over the world for being home to part of the Canadian Rocky Mountains and Canada in general is known for its natural beauty so officials want it to stay that way and designate land to be protected such as Jasper National Park. That way these ice and snow channels can continue to form year after year and will not be disturbed.
