Bison at Elk Island Nat.Park
Here is a photo to go with the "hayburgers" entry.
Just when you think it is spring to stay, winter grabs you with another wallop! No matter how snowy and cold it has been, the mountains in Jasper and Banff were still spectacular as ever! We heard that the bears are now out of hibernation over here. So we've carried our bear spray with us on a walk in Jasper. We saw some prints, but they ended up being wolf prints in the fresh snow....one big wolf!
The Icefields Parkway between Jasper and Banff was very picturesque and our last 20 km was very icy. Captain Dave drove nice and slow and we made it safely into Banff. The other drivers, however, were rather reckless and chose the path of speed, ending up in the snow bank and ditches. I think they may have close the highway after that. We just squeaked through!
Just to back up alittle, we'd like to thank some people who have been great hosts! Big thanks to Terry and Annette in Hinton, AB! Another thanks to Dan and Lori in Jasper, AB! And Marlene, in Edmonton, it was awesome to see you, hope to see you again on our return route!
