A dose of Medicine Lake

Medicine Lake in Jasper National Park in the Canadian Rockies is a mystical lake because its water level changes depending on the season and sometimes even disappears. Every fall the water starts to recede because the water which flows out through the sink holes does not get replenished from the water flowing down from the ice melts from the mountains beginning in the spring. Then in the winter, the water freezes of what is left over if there is any. The lake is filled up again in the spring. Nature designed it like a bath tub with automatic water flow cycle.
