I was hoping to see some stars and possibly see the Milky Way since this area near Jasper has some great dark sky areas.  I asked the hotel manager about a good place where I could see the dark sky.  He recommended Pyramid Lake.  He specifically mentioned the island in Pyramid Lake that was accessible by a bridge.  After dinner, I checked out the recommendation.  The area is very pretty.

   
   

 

   
   
 

   
   

Unfortunately the night sky was too cloudy, but I decided to return the following day to check out the area further.

     
     


 The waters were a lot calmer than the night before.

Pyramid Island has been a popular spot for visitors and locals since the 1930s, when the first footbridge was built.

There are some famous mountains behind those trees but it was till too cloudy to see much.
