Day 22: Thursday, June 6, 2013.
I am posting this on Day 30 of our journey from an RV park in Watson Lake, Yukon Territory. We finally have a good internet connection so I will try to catch up a little. The trip has been amazing, with LOTS of wildlife. We traveled through British Columbia and are now in the Yukon.
These pictures are from our drive along the Icefields Parkway from Banff National Park to Jasper National Park. Enjoy!
Our first two stops were at Crowfoot Glacier and Bow Lake
Next stop, a hike to see Peyto Lake. Henry learned that topsiders are not a good choice for hiking uphill through patches of slippery ice. He slipped on his way down and it’s the first time he slipped on ice and fell in June!
We talked to fellow travelers to Alaska at the overlook for Bridal Veil Falls.
We stopped for lunch at the huge parking lot for the Columbia Icefield where we had great views of the glacier.
After a fantastic day, we arrived at Whistler’s Campground in Jasper National Park. The warden told us to watch out for elk. It is calving season and the mother’s are very protective of their young. Just as we entered the campground we saw some adult elk with their calves. I wasn’t able to get pictures but what a great way to start our stay!
Stay tuned for more of Jasper, British Columbia and Yukon Territory.
