Mollie Adams Diary of Her Journey in the Canadian Rockies June 14, 1908

On June 23, a new book about Mary Schäffer, An Adventurous Woman Abroad, will be launched.
Many people have heard about Mary Schäffer, the first non-native woman to see Maligne Lake. Her survey of that beautiful lake contributed to its inclusion in Jasper National Park. Fewer people know Mary (Mollie) Adams.  Mollie Adams was Mary's traveling companion on many of her journeys into the backcountry and abroad from 1905 until 1911. Mollie documented their 1908 journey in search of Maligne Lake in her daily diary.  Follow their adventures over the next few months as her words are revealed. This is Mollie's June 14, 1908 diary entry.
