We saw this lake when we were heading to Maligne Lake. It was obvious there had been a fire, but it was striking against the blue lake. We also so mountain goats by the lake.

Medicine Lake is a beautiful lake on the way to Maligne Lake. Unfortunately, forest fires have blackened most of the forests surrounding the lake.
