Water and more water

Tomorrow (Tuesday) we will leave Jasper heading down south (& up in elevation) to Lake Louise and Moraine Lake areas of Banff NP and Kicking Horse canyon and Lake O’Hara in Yoho NP in BC. These are our favorite areas where we plan to do several of our most favorite hikes.  If the wifi at the park office there is like the wifi we have here in Jasper, it’s quite slow to write these posts and load photos.  So we’ll try to stay in touch, but might be spotty.

My dear cousin Jim gave us a bit of grief regarding our header photo not being very rustic looking, so we wanted to share a couple of photos of our Jasper campsite.

Here are a few photos from the past few days.  We hiked through Maligne Canyon where the water was gushing and we were able to see one of our favorite lacy falls flowing (it was pretty dry the last time we were here).  Then we did the short walk around Athabasca Falls which is so powerful and beautiful because of the glacial silt filled water.  Lastly is a photo we took this morning of Patricia Lake with Pyramid Mountain in the background & reflection.

    Very BEAUTIFUL! I really like that picture of Maligne Canyon and the Athabasca River photo. When are you going on the hike where the infamous carpet square was found?

    • Probably won’t do that one this trip – but of course will always keep eyes pealed for carpet or other assorted padding (inside joke for any others reading this blog).
