Jasper in Winter #13 – Valley of the 5 Lakes Hike

NOTE: This post contains slideshows and if you are reading it on your phone, it is best viewed direct from the SITE, rather than in the READER.

On our November 2013 visit, we opted to see these 5 lakes with a bit of snow on them. The walk was nice, with good footing and the lake colours still shone through. We even managed to spot a Pine Grosbeak, which we have never seen before or since.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ 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 wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. 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 never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. Hi Blanca. Thank you so much. This is one of the few times we hiked this trail with snow on it and it was a pleasant surprise. How are things in your part of the world. Hope you had a good weekend. Thanks for reading. Allan

      1. Hi Allan. We can´t do much at the moment due to the pandemic and weekends are pretty quiet, but feel blessed because we are all fine. Let´s hope situation improves soon. Hope you and your family are also doing well.

      2. We are well Blanca. Thanks for asking. Our son who works with Covid patients got his second shot yesterday, so we are glad for that. Our turn may come in late April/May. We just have to be patient. Glad you are all fine. Allan 😊
