Queen Elizabeth Range and Medicine Lake


Medicine Lake has large water volume variability, here we see it at nearly its maximum level. In the late summer, it can have nothing but a small stream running across its otherwise dry bed. The weather is typical for our vacations, but it at least gives a dramatic sky. This view is to the southeast over Medicine Lake with the Queen Elizabeth mountain range in the background. Only a few minutes after this picture was made, the clouds thickened and a light shower started.
