Yesterday we took a little time out . Martin and I went with my sister Heather and brother in law MArc on a little day trip to Jasper. Just a nice day to rest and recharge before the warm days come to an end and Winter is upon us. Jasper National park is one of Alberta's true treasures, beautiful views, the Rocky Mountains at their very finest ,wildlife, and wide open spaces. I was on a trip to denver once years ago, and the cab driver that picked me up at he airport said"While you are here you need to see the mountains " I told him I am from Alberta, and he laughed and said , "nevermind you have seen the best of them" I agree,though I do need to see more from my fellow bloggers in in Colorado , New Mexico, and Nevada. And well all of them , each has shown what beauty surrounds them in each different area. Here is a taste of what we have here
Makes me think of the movie "A river runs through it "
A Picture postcard shot
I swear Martin was having fun, not sure why he would not smile.Hey even I did with my crooked grin, and I rarely do for pics
BIL Marc, looking deep in thought
Deb and Brian recomended this spot , where the Athabasca river and the Maligne river meet , all the times I have been I had never stopped here.
Below is the log Marc kindly put across the water for me to cross,
A log roller, nor a mountain goat will I ever be! took my shoes and socks off and waded through on the return trip, cold but I figure one balancing act per day thanks
Saw this little sign and just loved it and had to share
And we actually bought Martin this shirt, we just had too!
Hope everyone had a good weekend .
And as always
