Jasper National Park: Downtown Jasper

(My solo road trip of western Canada – Friday 25th September)

Jasper downtown was nice but did not have the character I loved in Banff, much more happening and much more vibrant.  However, there was a different type of character in Jasper, more rugged, more rural, more isolated, more connected with nature.

This is true as far as the wildlife is concerned.  In the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies, it is no wonder you will find elk, caribou, moose, mule deer, white-tailed deer, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, grizzly bears, black bears, coyotes, beavers, Rocky Mountain pikas, hoary marmots, grey wolves, mountain lions, and wolverines!!!  I know I had already seen Elks, but to see some fighting got my adrenaline going, the sound which I could not capture  (as I did not have enough time when I sawe them) was a bit scary but truly wonderful!

My favourite part of  Jasper downtown without a doubt were the trees, they were so amazing, different colour trees side by side on a day where the weather was wet, miserable and overcast made the trees splendour stand out more…
