Jasper in June (Part 4) – The Lady and the Lake

Patricia Lake Bungalows is situated on this small jewel of a mountain lake. When we stay here, we always joke we are going to my Patty’s place. As soon as we had unpacked, there was nothing for it, but to walk down those stairs for that first view. While the wind was cool and the water was rough, it still did not disappoint.

The Lady and the Lake

Sitting quietly in calm repose,

on this coolish night, snug in warm clothes,

her blue eyes transfixed in such rapt gaze,

taking in the beauty of this place.

Wondering what her deep thoughts might be,

silently hoping they were of me,

I have all any man could wish for,

by this lake, with lady Patricia.

me in my natural habitat
The lake level was really high due to spring melt and recent rains

Peeking at the snowy peaks

taking a long walk on a very short pier
sungleams
our chairs await
looking to the other side

in normal times, you could sit on this part of the dock

bubbles on the lake

    1. I believe they are called Adirondacks in America and Muskoka chairs in Canada. They are everywhere in Canada’s National Parks for photo ops. The goal is to always hike at least to the red chairs. In this case, these were part of the resort. They do add a pop of colour. Thanks for reading. Allan

    1. Thank you. You would notice a big difference now, due to the infestations of the Mountain Pine Beetle (Climate Change). The forest now seems to be repairing itself as green turns to re turns to grey and then new species of tree spring up. It was especially beautiful during the spring green up. We have been to Jasper many times, but seldom in June. Thanks for reading and commenting. Allan

    1. Yes, the snow was renewed a couple of times while we were there. +10-13 where we were but much colder up on the peaks, so the rain came down as snow. Like the icing on the cake, for sure. Thanks for reading Aiva. Allan
