On the Wednesday we went to the summit of a local mountain - Whistlers mountain. This involved a cable car to 2270M and then a walk up to the top at 2470M. The views from the top were really good and we went a bit further by walking along the peak. We also met a Marmot (a squirrel like creature but bigger) who posed for photos!
We have decided that the Canadian Rockies are number 1 on our 'favorite places visited' list - they are just so spectacular!!
More to follow when I get some more money to feed into this damn computer...
Dean: Thursday 6th July - Hiking the trails around Jasper. There are a number of trails around Jasper and we did a bit of a 'mix n match', jumping from one trail to another. We walked along the banks of the Athabasca River, and around a number of beautiful lakes (especially Lake Annette and Lake Edith, which were stunning with their clear green and blue water, lined with forest trees and with the Canadian Rockies as a backdrop). In total we walked between 15-20km, but it was well worth it. In the evening we went for food at a restaurant called 'Evil Daves'. It was really good food. Really good.
