Canada – Jasper

The drive today was through farmland for the first couple of hours.   I thought I was the only one struggling to stay awake, however when I stood up to get something out of my bag after one head nod too many – I was greeted with a sea of sleeping people.  There were about 3 others not awake.  I didn’t feel so bad.

We arrived a Jasper early in the afternoon and had a walk around.  They say that there are a lot of Elk near the train line (it runs parallel to the town) but we didn’t see any.  We went for a second walk after dinner and made the decision to walk along the tree line behind the hotels.  Lo and behold – 7 Elk.   Still no freaking bear!

Off to Banff tomorrow.
