Jasper National Park

Jasper National Park, Alberta

The first time I had ever laid eyes on Jasper National Park, it was 2:30am and I was riding middle row of a Greyhound bus, we passed the Jasper sign and saw a small heard of elk, they were grazing and hanging out on the front lawn of a motel, like it was no big deal.

On the way back through Jasper, the sun was up and I found myself in a much different Jasper than the time berfore. Jasper is a small alpine town in Nortern Alberta that is surrounded by snow-capped Canadian Rockies, forests, glacier fed lakes and rivers. I spent my entire time taking in the stunning beauty of the mountains and breathing that fresh mountain air. One day I hope to return to Jasper, the views alone are one of my most vivid memories and that makes it a shoe in for one of our 150 favourite Canadian things.
