At the end of roundtrip through west Canada we arrive in Jasper National Park. Our entire trip has consisted of peaceful villages and provincial parks, so it is scary crowded when we drive into Jasper. We haven’t seen so much cars and tourist our entire trip through Canada as in Jasper National Park. By one-way streets we find our B & B. The advantage of Jasper is that we can walk to several restaurants in the city center of Jasper.

Jasper National Park is one of the most popular parks in Western Canada. There are broadly speaking four different hiking areas. Maligne Lake is the most popular of Jasper National Park. Here are several hiking trails, including Moose Lake, Opal Hills and Bald Hill. Near the Hot springs is a nice walk on the Sulphur Skyline Trail. On the Icefields Parkway are also several hiking including The Valley of the Five Lakes, Parker Ridge and the Wilcox Pass. We would also like to walk at Mount Edith Cavell and Cavell Glacier, but it was closed during our stay in Jasper National Park. (Sept 2012) There was part fallen of the Cavell Glacier in Cavell Pond which let to flooding the parking and the walking trails.

We have obtained a lot of information at the visitor center in Jasper National Park. The Rangers in the visitors are friendly and very helpful. There are also several free walking maps available. In Jasper National Park, you have a great opportunity to see wildlife. We have seen different groups of elks and some mountain goats. We also have in Jasper National Park, seen a black bear in the shoulder along the road. What you have to remember is that you are in bear country in Jasper National Park area. Keep this in mind if you are going to Jasper National Park.
