Canadian Rockies Trip Journal Day #9 Brings a Rainy Day in Jasper
Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge ~ Jasper, Alberta, Canada – Well, I suppose a baby boomer traveler needs to expect some inclement weather when traveling. Right?
For a good part of the day, we were so socked in with clouds that you couldn’t even see the beautiful, snow-covered Rocky Mountain peaks standing majestically behind the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge’s Lac Beavart.
After a little (actually a lot) of thumb sucking on my (David’s) part, we decided to not let the weather affect our ability to explore and set off to experience Jasper, the Canadian Rockies, and Maligne Lake.
After a little breakfast, and some work in our room, we set off for the Alberta town of Jasper to grab some fish and chips at the local Jasper Brewing Company. While I am the one with a sweet tooth, Carol loves her occasional “grease” fix and these fish and chips were right up her alley.
Here’s a shot I captured as we crossed the street to the pub…
As we made our way to Maligne Lake, in the Canadian Rockies, we noticed consistent road signs warning us of crossing Carib0u and we caught this guy munching on wet ground cover…
There is so much more to share, but Carol has just given me the ten-minute-warning (she’s nearly done doing the shower, hair, make-up thing). Therefore, I must pack up the computer and make our way off to Lake Louise.
