Medicine Lake

Foreboding clouds roll across Medicine Lake while it sits in winter hibernation. While the Maligne River pours into the lake from the south, the lake is actually a geological anomaly as there is no visible exit to the lake. The water however drains out through a cave system formed in the slightly soluble limestone rock. It does not surface again for 16km where Maligne Canyon improbably cuts its way out of the ground. The sinking river system is thought to be one of the largest inaccessible cave systems anywhere in the world. Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada
