The Magical Sunset in Jasper

 Lake Beauvert


A Photo Journal series from our trip to Glacier National Park and the Canadian Rockies.

Friday, July 7
After driving all day along the Icefields Parkway, we reached the Fairmont in Jasper and encountered our first wildlife of the day.

A small flock of ducks crossing the road in front of us.

And a female elk grazing beside the road.

Then we checked into our amazing room.


After helping Nana find her misplaced purse, the small crew went swimming.


Later we got everyone cleaned up and we walked to dinner.



And then we spent the evening by the every-changing skies of Beauvert Lake.
(Shown in chronological order from 8:50-9:40p.)


 (T couldn't resist a quick dip. ;)
 (A bald eagle.)



The sky was still so light at 10pm when we finally decided we needed to go to bed to be ready for another full day tomorrow.

We left early to drive along the Bow Valley Parkway. (8:00a)

And then we took the Icefields Parkway to Jasper.
We used the GyPSy app to help us know more about the things we saw and the best places to stop along the way.

Hector Lake

Crow's Foot Glacier


Bow Lake

Num-Ti-Jah Lodge

(It was cold!)

Peyto Lake
The waterfalls on the far left "trickle" down and flow into the lake making a mix of colors.
(It was a short, but mosquito-filled trail to the view.  But the kids loved running through the small trails along the way.)


Bridal Veil Fall and Big Bend

Columbia Icefield/Athabasca Glacier (12:00p)






Tangle Creek Falls

Sunwapta Falls

Athabasca Falls

We reached the Fairmont at Jasper (3:45p) for one of the most beautiful evenings of our entire trip.  (To be continued...)
