This place is far from Banff, on Jasper’s Maligne Lake. In the distance is Mount Leah, and the three glaciers, which feed the lake. Long ago the journey from Banff to here was on a Stoney native hunting trail. I can feel their spirits here. And there’s the islet, known as Spirit Island. Malign means danger, mystery, and adventure, and the lake name taken from the French word for malignant or wicked. In my life, sometimes I’m an island, sometimes the traveller.
