    Birthday surprises continue

    September 6 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    We arrive at Jasper Park Lodge, room keys are issued & we’re dying to get settled. I’m a little confused because there’s two different room numbers. Maybe we have adjoining rooms???? Not quite, we’ve been upgraded to a two bedroom, 3 bathroom, lounge with lake views villa..... OMG 😲
    Then I spy a fruit & cheese platter and a couple of bottles of wine. Pity we’re not here longer, we could really go a nice quite sit at the lake. Watch the world go by.....
    While I’m dreaming of all things peaceful the phone rings, it’s the front desk - Mrs Sloan, executive chef Christopher (didn’t catch the surname) is waiting for you in the lobby, he wishes for you to tour the facility...... um - ok....

    These kitchens that were like rabbit warren’s all through the building. And they service 72 acres of facilities, today there were 5 weddings & a golf tournament on, Chris took time out of his day for mum.... I personally believe he was just tickled pink that someone was wanting to see into his world.

    No sooner was the tour over that we only had enough time to change and head off for dinner at Moose’s Nook - steak house. Wow the food was delicious.

    Back to the room for a nice cuppa with our dinner guests from the tour - Maria & Adina. Two Italian ladies that had us in hysterics all night.

    What a sensational day, travelling miles & making memories. 💕

    Maligne Canyon and Lake

    August 22 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F

    Nice, cool morning, looked around for elk....it was as if they were never here. Not hide nor hair. Gone. The loop felt so empty with out them....!

    Packed up our RV and drove into Jasper to leave unit for the day as Kristi and Steve picked us up for day out to Maligne Canyon. What a gorgeous spot. This is a river canyon carved by water that is very (!) narrow and varies in depth up to something like 60 meters from the top of the canyon wall. The park had created a meandering hike that includes bridges spanning the canyon in several locations. So you get these great views right over a roaring river. The noise is great, and in places you feel the spray. Very popular tour spot (with buses) complete with gorgeous "teahouse" (restaurant) and gift shop, so dealt with a pretty significant number of people on the trail, but still would not want to miss this stop!

    Back on road following Maligne river going by Medicine Lake for a quick look. Spotted a couple of loons and watched them dive and surface. Continued the drive to Maligne Lake. Another beautiful spot! A pretty big lake surrounded by these big rocky mountains. Perfect day to be there with clouds and blue sky! Had packed our lunches and sat out in the sun enjoying the view and lunch.

    This lake is an old historic tour destination from the early 1900s. It has maintained an old historic boat house with canoe and kayak rentals. It has the old Lake Chalet restaurant, (dinner only), and a new very contemporay lakeside restaurant for lunch and dinner with a gift shop. They also run boat tours that go to the far end of the lake for a different view of the mountains and Spirit Island. And of course many hiking options! K & S took off on the Moose loop, wihile Tom and I enjoyed lakeside strolling, picture taking and a little time in the gift shop!

    Back to Jasper with a quick stop at another "red chair" location along the Maligne river, and back into Jasper about 4 pm. Tom and I took our RV back to camp while K & S went into town with errands. Stopped for showers going in...still a great, hot shower with lots of water.

    Such a nice warm day that we barbecued hot dogs for dinner! Kept our eyes open for an elk return, but were disappointed. However we had an excellent day! So thankful for this trip, and have loved Jasper!

    Pyramide Lake

    January 31 in Canada ⋅ ❄️ 0 °C

    Zusammen mit einer anderen Deutschen bin ich heute morgen auf zum Pyramide Lake. Irgendwo sind wir falsch abgebogen, bzw. die Wege waren durch den Schnee nicht sonderlich gut zu finden. Nach einer unfreiwilligen aber sehr spaßigen Rutschpartie auf dem Hintern einen Hang hinunter, sind wir mehr oder weniger querfeldein. Als wir ein Auto von der Straße hörten, sind wir erst mal ein Stück dort entlang. Viel befahren war sie nicht. Gleich nach der ersten Kurve fanden wir dafür ein Elch neben uns wieder :) Und ein Stück weiter konnten wir dann auch auf den gut beschilderten Weg zurück, den zumindest schon eine Person vor uns gelaufen war. Etwa sieben Kilometer später sind wir am See angekommen und haben uns Schlittschuhe geliehen. Meine waren so unfassbar unbequem, so dass ich nach der ersten Runde aufgegeben habe. Danach sind wir noch ein Stück weiter auf eine kleine Insel im See. Im Sommer sicherlich ein Traum! Auf dem Rückweg sind wir dann auf der Straße geblieben und der Plan ging auf, ein australisches Paar hat uns den Rest mit zurück nach Jasper genommen. Wandern im Schnee ist irgendwie anstrengender :DRead more

    Annette Lake, Canada

    July 30, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Dinner with the Elk.

    We spent some time finding a good dinner spot that night and boy did we nail it! A drawn out sunset at Annette Lake provided superb lighting in the fantastic scenery. Mid-cook we were visited by a herd of grazing Elk who were by no means unfriendly, coming within striking distance of our table - most likely jealous of the smell of our spag bol.

    We returned late to our camp site to pass the eleventh night on the floor in Canada. Our last night in a tent and boy were we pumped to get back to a bed!
