The day after our visit to Jasper National Park (early May, 2016) we decided to visit along the David Thompson Highway. We started that windy, showery, morning by taking a closer look at Abraham Lake, the reservoir for the city of Edmonton, whose water level was significantly down after a very dry 2015.
In these first three photos we are looking towards the south. Mr. IDWE provides an idea of the scale of the ‘beach,’ the exposed bed of the reservoir. The fuzziness off in the distance is a shower.
Once on the beach we turned north and almost lost our hats to the wind whistling down the lake. That’s a dust storm in the background.
Where we stayed: Aurum Lodge. Recommended: highly.
