During the winter in Jasper National Park the snow covers Medicine Lake. The sunset reflects on the snow capped peaks of the nearby mountain peaks. The Canadian Rocky Mountains are part of Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada.
Medicine Lake is actually an area where the water backs up from the Maligne River. From the snow runoff during the summer it becomes a lake and as the water drains it becomes a river.
Fly fisherman enjoy Medicine Lake because of its abundant supplies of rainbow and brook trout. The area is also home to wildlife such as bald eagles, moose, wolves, grizzly and black bear, to name a few.
