Oh Canada

We've made it to Canada to visit my parents! They live in Neerlandia, Alberta which is a very small town NW of Edmonton. We've been having a great time. Here's a little bit of a recap so far.

Rebecca did pretty well on her first flights.
We went to Jasper National Park for two days and one night. It is a mountain town with plenty of tourism. There is a tram that will take you to up the mountains. The elevation of the tran when from 1304 meters up to 2277 meters above sea level.
There are two trams that counter balance each other as they go up and down. Each car holds about 30 people and takes about 8 minutes to go up the mountain. We went up on a very clear day and we were able to see Mt. Robson (snowcovered in the middle of the picture) which is the hightest point in the Canadian Rockies at 3954 meters. After the tram dropped us off we hicked another 200 meters to the very top and ejoyed a 360 view of the beautiful mountains.
More to come...
