It was still
rainy this morning. And,it was cold enough that
I had to pull out the winter hat that my friend Sue, from Minnesota, let me borrow. Thanks Sue, it sure felt good today!
As every other day, the gang was up early and ready to get on the road. We traveled from Lake Louise on 93N...destination, Jasper National Park. And, Oh, the things, we saw!
Thank goodness on this late in May day, the winter travel conditions were showing
Good, because, we saw
yet another frozen lake and
lots of snow covered mountains.
I wish we could have seen the
them hiding behind the fog and clouds.
This stop...at still another frozen lake and glacier
little fun in the snow...do I see a snowball fight in the making?
Here, I met a

Back on the road, the mountains became
more majestic...just breath taking.
Soon, we were at the
Visitors Center for
The Columbia Ice Field. Can you find the bus that takes you on the glacier?

magnificent waterfalls made up the morning. And...
We weren't the only ones
out today enjoying the views. This guy stopped traffic in both directions. This was taken right out the front window of the motor home as we waited for him to get across the road. Yes, pedestrians do have the right away!
From here is was on to
Whistlers Campground in Jasper National Park...this is the second night in the park system.
As the routine goes...once we were settled in, it was time to hit the local streets. Today, in the little town of Jasper, we found
lunch of burgers, fries, and
With full tummies, it was off to do a little walking,
hanging out with the local bear in town! And, he gave us a little tip about where we could take an evening outing...and
find the real thing!
In addition, we saw
a deer, who by the way, was watching the bear as well!
Today was another great day...from the snow covered mountains to the Canadian wildlife, we just wonder...how can tomorrow be better than today!
