October 4, 2020 Our week in the mountains over, it was now time to head for home. Before breakfast, I made one last visit down to the lake to take in the views. Rain was forecast and we could not believe the weather change from the previous day. We will miss this place, but hopeContinue reading “Autumn 2020 – Part 52 – One Last Look – 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.

October 1, 2020 As we set out for our usual evening by the lake, we noted that our Lady friend from the other evening was back grazing around the complex. My title comes from the meaning of the Shawnee word Wapiti which is another name for the American elk.

Feeling Right at Home © Autumn shines brightly on our mountain cabin world. Feeling right at home.

The whole thingContinue reading “Autumn 2020 – Part 24 – Evening Elk – Jasper National Park”
September 30, 2020 It was easy to fall into a comfortable routine on this stay in Jasper. One would never think that retirees would ever need a break from their day job, but we certainly needed a break from our 2020 life to this point.

September 29, 2020. Golden Morning © Cloudy skies in shades of grey, create a look quite gloomy. As the birds begin their day, a golden warmth spreads through me. Red, lime green and bright yellow, all aspen trees adorning. Looking at hillsides aglow on golden autumn morning.
September 28, 2020. After our hike, we returned to our Home Away from Home, Patricia Lake Resort. Honestly, we have stayed here so often, it does not take long for it to feel like home. Home is Where the Heart is! © We get the meaning of Home is where the Heart is. Feeling rightContinue reading “Autumn 2020 – Part 8 – Home is Where the Heart is! – Jasper National Park”
September 27, 2020 We first stayed here in 2001 and at that time, we wondered why we had never been here before. Since then, we have stayed here at least 7 more time. We would not think of spending our Jasper stay anywhere else. Situated down a long drive and nestled on the shore ofContinue reading “Autumn 2020 – Part 3 – Patricia Lake Resort – Jasper National Park”
