We took a chance yesterday and
bought tickets for the Jasper Tram and Maligne Lake Boat tour,
guessing the clouds would clear and leave us with
glorious weather today.
It was a good guess.
The sun is bright and hot when
the tram delivers us to
sweeping alpine meadows
at the top of Whistlers Mountain.
We take our time along Maligne Lake Road,
savoring the scenery
even as clouds thicken above us.
On the lake
the boat glides across satin water
at the foot of the glacier-clad mountains.
