Another full day in a Jammer for Karen and I, riding north to the Peace Park in Alberta. Driver Bill obviously enjoys his job as a Jammer driver. He talks about the Native American traditions and provides an interesting narrative on our ride. Driving over the mountain pass is spectacular. When you view the valley you are overwhelmed by the vast rows of mountains ahead of you. We have a very nice lunch at the lovely Prince of Whales Hotel. Our servers are wearing kilts and are students from a hotel management program. We regret than when planning our trip we had tried to stay here for a couple of nights but where unable to get a reservation. This hotel is in such a beautiful location on a high bluff overlooking the valley. This is the third hotel built on this location by the Great Northern Railroad. The first two attempts blew away before they finished construction.
