More of Jasper

Here are a few more pictures from our time in Jasper. We stayed at the Athabasca Hotel right in down town Jasper. It was a short walk to the shops and places to eat.
We also went to the Sunwapta and Athabasca Falls. There were beautiful! The color of the Athabasca river is a striking green-blue aqua color from the rock flour that it picks up in the mountains. Rebecca is the perfect poser!

On our way out of the park we drove past Jasper Lake and saw people walking out to the middle. We had to stop and get it out. It was a full size lake that was only about a foot deep all the way across. That is my sisiter Rachel out in the middle of the lake.

We also saw a lot of elk along the road side.


  1. I know that you are in the rough and tumble wilds of Canada but don't they have razors there?

  2. Rachel thought it would be a good idea for Dan not to shave and he didn't need much convincing.
