What a beautiful drive we had today thru the Icefields Parkway. We saw glacier after glacier within the icefields & took picture after picture. Trying to decide what not to post was very difficult.
We stopped for lunch at a pullout along the Alexandra River - named after a British Queen, of course. Wonderful views of peaks & icefields as we enjoyed our sandwiches.
We had rain off & on during the drive & it was raining when we got to the Icefields Centre & the Athabasca Glacier so we just stopped for a look from the truck & then headed on to Jasper.
We're spending the night at the Whistler Campground which is a Jasper Nat'l Park campground. It's in an aspen forest & they've done a great job of keeping the forest in the campground. We drove into Jasper for fuel & to eat at the Jasper Brewing Co - which is related to the Banff Brewpub. They have wifi so we were able to do a couple of posts while we were having our dinner.
Our critter count today was: Elk - 1 - Bighorn Sheep - 5 (not counting the bronze one at the brewing company)
