A WALK TO THE VALLEY OF FIVE LAKES

This gem of an area is just a few kilometers south of Jasper and the parking area is well signed.  if you go, I highly suggest you take the trail to the right on the way in and then the trail between lakes 4 and 5 for returning to the parking lot.   Continuing along lake 5 then way beyond  to where the trail forks back almost doubles the distance without a lot of worthy views.  

The first little stream we crossed



The five lakes are all different depths which gives each lake a different colour

There is another post from today that you can access by scrolling down the page or possibly clicking on "older post".  We paid for another couple nights here at Whistlers Campground so now it will be at least Thursday before we move down the road into Banff National Park.  There is still lots to see here.
