Exploring the Rockies!

Welcome to Jasper National Park!


Yes, for a few days my family and I escaped the prairies and headed northwest into the vast and wonderful rocky mountains!  On this particular camping trip, we headed to Jasper  National Park (http://www.pc.gc.ca/pn-np/ab/jasper/index.aspx), and I must say it was such a treat to take our boys to this beautiful gem nestled in the rockies.  I have not visited Jasper, Alberta, Canada for many, many years and it was great exploring it with my husband and kids!  Since we had not been there as a family before we hit many 'tourist' destinations!  First on our list ... the Jasper Tramway (http://www.jaspertramway.com) and Whistlers Mountain!


After getting off the tram, we embarked on the hike to the summit!  We had perfect weather and perfect views!




The views from the summit on this perfect day included Mount Robson ... the highest point in the Canadian Rockies!



And what better way to start off a family holiday ... sharing an incredible view with your lil' ones!
