Autumn 2020 – Part 50 – Glad to be Home – Jasper National Park

October 3, 2020 Finally, just before 2:00 PM, we arrived back at our cabin, but we needed to take a shopping run into Jasper, before we could relax. Back by 2:30, we settled down to enjoy the +25 C fall temperatures and a glass of Rosé. Life is good.

Autumn 2020 – Part 49 – The Long Walk Home – Jasper National Park

October 3, 2020 Lunch over, it was now time to pay the piper. We still had some elevation to gain on our way up to the Pyramid Bench overlooks. The spirt was willing, but the flesh was week.

October 3, 2020 After Katrine Lake, we continued about .75 km (1/2 mile) along Trail 2h, until the junction with 2i. We turned right on 2h and continued on to Pyramid Bench where we had been on Monday. The trail climbed steadily and was quite muddy in places. This portion of the hike was aboutContinue reading “Autumn 2020 – Part 47 – Onward and Upward – Jasper National Park”

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

Autumn 2020 – Part 44 – Feeling Invincible – Jasper National Park

October 3, 2020 So, we got the bright idea to leave the car parked and walk to our Katrine Lake hike today. The sign at the gate to our resort said Pyramid Lake 2 km. How bad could it be? What we did not recall was that adding in the length of the Patricia LakeContinue reading “Autumn 2020 – Part 44 – Feeling Invincible – Jasper National Park”

Autumn 2020 – Part 41 – Wilcox Ridge Trail – Jasper National Park

October 2, 2020 In June when we were here, we could barely see the trail at higher elevation, as knee deep snow still covered parts of it, as well as the trail head sign. So, this was going to be new territory for us. After our picnic and sheep watching stops, we hiked this trailContinue reading “Autumn 2020 – Part 41 – Wilcox Ridge Trail – Jasper National Park”
