Jasper in Winter #16 – Patricia Lake & Bungalows

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.

From my last series on Jasper, you will understand that this is one of our favourite places on the planet. The shots I will show you were all taken in May 2019…..not winter you say? Well, as it turns out, Mother Nature had a small gift in store for us. Our New Zealand guests, M & P did not mind the sight of spring snow one bit.

The evening we arrived, we were busy playing a game, when we looked out the windows to see this pretty sight.

We went to bed that night not knowing what we might find the next morning. Ever the light sleeper, I was first up and popped down for these photos while everyone slept.

Walking back to the cabin, I captured a few shots of the grounds.

Once everyone was up and breakfasted, we walked down to the lake again and stood in awe of the beauty surrounding us.

Driving to our hike, we paused for one more look.

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. Good Morning Marion. That was a beautiful day, with winter renewed on the spring day. Patricia Lake Bungalows is full of the Muskoka chairs, at every cabin. Such a great place to relax and watch the world go by. Thanks for reading. Enjoy your Sunday. Allan

    1. Thanks Joni. Hard to believe that was just under 2 years ago. Nature paints a beautiful picture for sure. We could not believe how quiet the new snow made the whole area. Thanks for reading. Allan

    1. We got lucky on that trip. May see this again this May. Our snow was sinking rapidly and then the last 3 days froze that process. Supposed to warm up next week. Spring’s progress will be slow in this part of the world, but we can wait. What else can we do? Stay well and have a great week. Allan

  1. That’s so beautiful with the snow in May! I heard the 4 Canadian seasons are summer, winter, despair and false hope. Seems like you and your friends were there at the false hope season! Lol! 😂

    1. As our friends form the Wet Coast (B.C.). say that Alberta only has 2 seasons….8 months of winter and 4 months of good skiing. I would miss my 4 seasons if I lived elsewhere, even if winter can be a bit long. One pretty day can make us put up with 5 months of winter. Stay well and thanks for reading. Allan

    1. Anything is possible Bernie, but Jasper town is a bit more protected than the surrounding mountains. It was a beautiful day and I was just lucky to be there to see it. Hope all is well. Thanks for reading and have a great week. Allan

  2. I could easily print and frame all of your beautiful winter photos, Allan, and then look at them for hours and loose myself in natures beauty. I’ve certainly fallen in love with Jasper through your posts and pictures. Thanks for sharing and have a good day. Aiva 🙂

  3. Well darn, just when I was rejoicing that Spring is finally around the corner, you post photos that make me realize I’ll miss the beauty of snow! LOL… But that’s okay, they’re so lovely that I’m glad you did.

    1. Thank you. The fresh snow was pretty, but when the morning sun hit it, it was spectacular. I must admit to being a bit like a kid on Christmas morning, heading outside to see what I can capture. Thanks for reading. Allan
