Moose Lake Hike

Posted by

Jasper National Park, Canada
The Moose Lake Loop Trail winds through the thick lodge pole pine tree forest and beautiful scenery to the lake. It is rated as a moderate hike, but to us it seemed pretty steep and hard but worth the effort. Moose are commonly encountered in this area.

We were happy to find a large female moose out in the water feeding on bottom plants. There was another moose on the other side of a small island.

You were lucky. Floating moose, beautiful colors and optical illusion at the top of the mountain. It seems to me that a wolf is sliding down a mountain.

A spectacular image. That moose adds a lot of foreground interest. I love the trees and mountains, too.
