Trip to Jasper.....

In July we took a 3 day trip to Jasper, Alberta. While I have been before, I have never taken the road from Edmonton; and needless to say it was beautiful.









The pictures above are of Athabasca Falls. This water comes from the Columbia Icefield Glacier and flows directly to the Athabasca River, which is where I live. The picture below is of a section of this waterfall that has dried up. Thousands of years ago this was part of the falls.
