The drive from Wells Gray Provincial Park to Jasper National Park is spectacular! Densely treed ridges give way to rugged snow topped mountains with new vistas presenting at every turn of the road.
Views along the highway....
Jasper National Park
Jasper National Park is chock full of unexpectedly beautiful vistas. Around every turn, it seems, we find a new opportunity for exclamations of "Oh, my god, look at that!" In addition, abundant wildlife viewing opportunities (today, including Bighorn Sheep, elk and moose) remind us that we are truly in the wild.
Todays destinations included, Medicine Lake, Lake Maligne and Miette Hot Springs, where we soaked in the 104 degree waters (outside air temp being 46 degrees!), ate a home cooked Greek dinner At our innkeeper's restaurant where we rented a small bungalow cabin for the night.
The drive from Jasper to Banff is spectacular. More incredible alpine vistas, Athabascan Falls with its moss-clad rocks, the Athabascan Glacier Fields and our lovely campsite at Wilcox Campground near Sunwapta Pass having a spectacular view of a snow clad mountains.
