As we had Eamonn’s niece, Natasha visiting, we thought Jasper would be a stunning introduction to the Canadian Rockies. I know we have photographed many of these scenes before, but it is just so beautiful, you can’t help but take a few more!! Shame about the dull sky on the drive there.
This was a Clarks Nutcracker at Lake Louise. Unfortunately with it being Canada Day, Lake Louise was incredibly busy so we thought we would carry on and try again on the journey back.
As we drove the Icefields Parkway, we stopped off at many scenic spots along the way, the first being Peyto Lake.
This area is known as Big Bend and you can see the Icefields Parkway as it snakes through the mountains.
This is a shot of the snow still present on the mountains.
Another stop was the amazing and powerful Sunwapta Falls.
As we were driving along, we spotted this Elk Stag.
After dinner, we took a look at the peaceful Beauvert Lake, which was just gorgeous at that time of night.
Before long though, Elk started to appear out of the woods and we were soon surrounded. Thankfully though, they just seemed to have dinner on their mind.
This one walked right past us, and it was huge. Shame it blurred (it was going quite dark and the camera didn’t like it!).
It was a lovely and relaxing first day in Jasper.
