Abraham Lake is the water reservoir for the city of Edmonton which lies to the northeast. The water level was relatively low in early May as it had not been refilled by the snow melt from the Rockies.
Aurum Lodge is a bed and breakfast which offers optional evening meals, accurate travel information – including the borrowing of books and maps – and places to hike and explore on site. They run photography workshops and excursions all year round. It is located on the David Thompson Highway between Nordegg and Cline River, Alberta, and is a perfect location from which to explore both Jasper and Banff National Parks. The Lodge uses active and passive solar for heat and hot water.
