A Canoe Trip to Hidden Lake Territorial Park, Northwest Territories

One of the highlights of a five day canoe trip in the Northwest Territories, starting at Kilometer 55 on the Ingraham Trail, just above the Ramparts, and finishing in the city of Yellowknife was the overnight detour we made to Hidden Lake Territorial Park.

Kayaking Majestic Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park

BEAUTIFUL!! I just wanted to scream those words. I was so blown away with the Maligne Lake scenery.It was much, much grander than I expected.
