JASPER! TOOK MY BREATH AWAY!! BY FAR THE BIGGEST HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP!

STUNNING SCENERY - LAKE MALIGNE, ATHABASCA FALLS, PYRAMID LAKE,
BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAIN LANSCAPES.

THE ABOVE PICTURE WAS TAKEN AT PYRAMID LAKE EARLY MORNING.
I AM VERY PROUD OF THIS SHOT :)
IT WON ME A TRIP TO NEW YORK IN MAY 2017. I ENTERED IT IN A TRAVEL
COMPETITION THAT WENT FOR A WHOLE YEAR WITH AUSPHOTOGRAPHY.
I WON OVER ABOUT 36 INTERMEDIATE PHOTOS AND BEAT THE ADVANCED
WHO WON OVER AROUND 45 PHOTOS. HOW GOOD IS THAT! ;)
SO WE ARE OFF TO NY FOR AN ALL EXPENSES PAID PHOTO TOUR WITH
U DESIGN PHOTO TOURS INCLUDING A PHOTOGRAPHY CHOPPER RIDE
OVER MANHATTAN. WOOHOO!!

WE STAYED AT PYRAMID LAKE RESORT. THE CHALETS HERE ARE VERY
COMFY AND OVERLOOK PYRAMID LAKE. BREAKKY AND DINNER AT THE
RESTAURANT ALSO HAS STUNNING VIEWS OF THE LAKE.

I WAS HOPING THAT WE WOULD SEE SNOW. IT WAS CERTAINLY COLD
ENOUGH FOR IT.....BRRRR. I BOUGHT A NEW COAT WITH FLUFF AROUND
THE HOOD. BOUGHT IT ESPECIALLY FOR OUR ROCKY MOUNTAIN
EXPERIENCE. I WAS SNUG :)

MALIGNE LAKE.

EVERYWHERE WE WENT WE ENJOYED GORGEOUS VIEWS!
UNFORTUNATELY THE BOAT HERE WASN'T RUNNING BUT THAT WAS
OK BECAUSE THE VIEWS THEMSELVES MADE UP FOR THAT.
WE ALSO SAW OUR FIRST SQUIRREL HERE.
WE HADN'T HAD MUCH LUCK SEEING OTHER NATIVE ANIMALS -
JUST A BABY BLACK BEAR AS WE ARRIVED ON THE TRAIN.
AND A FEW MOOSE THAT CROSSED THE ROAD AS WE WERE DRIVING
TO THE RESORT.

ATHABASCA FALLS.

THIS IS A STUNNING SIGHT. THE BOARDWALK IS EASY TO WALK ON
AND THE FALLS ARE ONLY ABOUT 100M IN. PATHWAY IS ALSO
WHEELCHAIR FRIENDLY.

WE ARRIVED HERE ON THE VIA RAIL. IT WAS A LONG JOURNEY
LEAVING VANCOUVER AT 8PM ON SUNDAY AND ARRIVING AT 4PM
ON MONDAY. BUT MOST DEFINITELY WORTH IT!!

WE ONLY PAID $150AUS EACH AS OPPOSED TO THE ROCKY
MOUNTAINEER WHICH COSTS AROUND $2,000!!
THE TRAIN HAD A FEW LITTLE CABINS UP TOP WITH PERSPECTS
DOME SO WE COULD ENJOY THE MOUNTAIN VIEWS ALONG THE
WAY. WE ALL THOROUGHLY ENJOYED THIS JOURNEY.
UPON ARRIVAL AT JASPER, WE PICKED UP OUR AVIS HIRE CAR,
SET THE GPS AND HEADED 10MIN OUT OF TOWN TO THE RESORT.

JASPER TOWN IS SMALL. WALKING AROUND THE QUIET STREETS
WAS A PLEASURE.

LAST DAY BEFORE WE HEADED OUT OF TOWN WE HAD BREAKKY
AT OUR FIRST AMERICAN STYLE DINER. IT WAS PRETTY GOOD
BUT THERE WERE DIFFERENCES TO WHAT WE ARE USED TO
HAVING FOR BREAKKY. THEY HAVE POTATOES FOR BREAKKY...?
THAT'S DIFFERENT. I ASKED FOR TOMATOES WITH MY EGGS
AND BACON.... TOMATOES WEREN'T COOKED HAHA :)
BUT A MOST ENJOYABLE BREAKFAST STILL THE SAME.
