Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Feb. 10, 2014: Rock Isle Lake, Sunshine Meadows, Alberta

POD 008 Feb 10, 2014 Rock Isle Lake sunshine-meadows


Lonely Planet rates Sunshine Meadows as one of the greatest hiking destinations in Canada.  Unlike most of the Continental Divide, which is characterized by sharp ragged peaks, this region offers 100 square kilometers of fairly flat, easily hiked alpine meadow.  It is one of the most accessible and beautiful higher altitude hiking experiences in the Canadian Rockies


For unobstructed views of mountains, for green meadows with millions of flowers in bloom, for clear blue lakes, and wildlife and bird viewing opportunities you can't beat a sunny summer day at Sunshine Meadows.  This beautiful scene of Rock Isle Lake is just one of a hundred in the area.
