where we were staying for three weeks
(the house won 1st prize in the town's Christmas Decorating contest.)
Jasper National Park
(the town is in the park - therefore you can not live there unless you work there - otherwise - I'd be living there!)
Athabasca River in front of Becker's Cabins.
17 yrs ago we rented a cabin here and did our first white water rafting trip on this river.

Jasper to Lake
(240 km - 2.5 hr. drive without stops
through Jasper National Park and into Banff National Park)
The Icefield Parkway
(there was an
article in the paper recently stating that the Icefield Parkway was the most
beautiful drive in Canada.
I've traveled it almost annually for 17 years but this was the first time I'd done it in the winter.
One of the many glaciers along the route.
...Sunny but chilly, it was -20 Celcuis (about 5F)
The sun was just coming up from behind the peak.
Thankfully, the roads were in good shape.
Around every corner was another
breath-taking view. Arriving in the village of Lake Louise,
with the Victoria Glacier off in the distance.
The access road from Lake Louise up to the Chateau Lake Louise, Chateau Lake Louise finally comes into sight.
Victoria Glacier across Lake Louise,
taken from in front of the Chateau Lake Louise.
Chateau Lake Louise, as we approached from the day visitor's parking lot.
On the grounds of the Chateau. Looking out onto Lake Louise from the hotel you can see the skaters on the lake, people walking across the lake and an enormous Ice Castle behind the center tree.
