The second faze of my recent vacation was traveling from Mt.Robson to Jasper National Park, which is only about an hours drive from the former. Along the Yellowhead Highway (16), there are several interesting places to stop and take photos, first along Moose Lake, which is the only lake on the main stream of the Fraser River. The Fraser River enters the Pacific Ocean near Vancouver, which is over 900km away.
As I continued east towards the British Columbia, Alberta border, I passed through an area were Moose were very abundant, although I didn't see any. I could see why the area was called Moose Lake, and the Moose marsh, the habitat would be ideal for moose! Along the highway there were numerous signs telling drivers to watch out for moose crossing the road, but I read later that most crossing happen in the evening around dusk. There were no suitable places to stop so I didn't get any photos of the marsh.
The next place I was able to stop was Yellowhead Lake, which is much smaller than Moose Lake. The lake itself isn't overly interesting from a photographic standpoint, but the Yellowhead Mountain that towers over it, is interesting. Due to the persistent low cloud cover I wasn't able to get a clear shot of the mountain, but I like what I was able to capture none the less.
In Part 3 I'll cover my first day in Jasper National Park.
