Our fall trip to Jasper , Radium and Banff

After enjoying a rally in Rosebud Alberta our drive to Jasper started out with a rainbow but turned into heavy rain , not letting up until we arrived at Whistlers Campground . Luckily the weather improved although still cloudy no more rain .
Love taking the boat tour of Maligne Lake , it is breathtaking .

Our " Landlord and his Harem" really kept us on our toes at our Whistlers campsite , nearly jumped out of my skin a couple of times - woke up one morning ,sat up in bed and peaked out the window only to have a cow looking at me ....... We rode the tram up Whistlers Mountain and hiked to the summit . It had some snow so was pretty icy , not the best day for it . The views are worth it -there is nothing quite like that "on top of the world " feeling . Stopped off at Athabasca Falls on the way to Radium .

After Radium comes Banff - the weather was so nice we decided to hike up to the Lake Agnus Tea House , starting point is Lake Louise ....then Mirror Lake... the water fall just below the tea house ...and then the spectacular Lake Agnus which is so clear one would not know where the water starts but for the reflection ... Tea and cookies on the veranda of the tea house - delicious !

Great pics. Jasper is definitely my favourite of the Canadian mountain national parks.

Really fantastic photos! Wish we were still there. Fall must be the best time. We had the crowds. That Mirror Lake is awesome.
