Autumn 2020 – Part 45 – So, this is where the crowds are! – Jasper National Park

October 3, 2020

From Patricia Lake, it was just a short hop to Pyramid Lake, or so we thought, but at each road pull off, we found ourselves zigging and zagging back and forth across the road to keep 2 meters between us and others (Safe Six). This, coupled with time to take the views in and take photos added to our walking time to the trailhead. But, in retrospect, we would not have changed a thing.

the yellow Aspen leaves against the blue sky were startling
Daisy or weed, we did not care – they were still pretty
walking along the Technicolour roadway
first glimpse of Pyramid Lake Resort
Pyramid Mountain reflected in Pyramid Lake
Pyramid Lake Resort boat rentals
in non-Covid times, we would have been out on the lake
such a reflection
the resort and restaurant
almost to our destination

After working for 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 3+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wanted me to do has been rewarding. While I still miss the social aspect of working with a team of great people, I have managed to keep in touch with many from my former team and I have many friends and family members who now fulfill this part of my life. Now that my Patty has retired, we are able to spend more time in pursuits and with people who are near and dear to us. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may not become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. Beautiful travel photos, Allan. There are so many beautiful lakes and rivers in Jasper and I can see why many people choose to visit as the park permits swimming, scuba diving, boating, kayaking, canoeing, fishing and white-water rafting. Not to mention the wildlife, mountains and winter activities. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day. Aiva 🙂

    1. Yes, there are a lot of options in Jasper, including just being in nature. Jasper also has our favourite downhill ski hill, Marmot Basin, but our skiing days may be done. Stay well Aiva and thanks for reading. Allan

    1. Thank you. In my earlier post in this series (form the Old Fort Point hike) we saw the largest rainbow we had ever seen over Pyramid Mountain. It was magical, just like the mountain. Thanks for reading Christie. Allan.

      1. Thanks. Yup, WordPress is not without its glitches. I have had this happen to me as well. I agree, Alberta may not have the ocean, but it has most other climate zones. Thanks so much for reading Christie. Stay well. Allan
