Alberta Trip, The Finale

Here we are, the final report for my trip. After getting the pictures at Morants Curve we a stop at Lake Louise,

and Moraine Lake.

If you have never been to the Rockies and wonder if the water really is that turquoise colour? Yes it is, this is created from the silt of the melting glacier ice and let me tell ya, the bloody water is cold!!!!!! I know, I tried it out.

Within 30 seconds I realized the water is colder than anything I’ve stood in before and it was almost 30 degrees Celsius that day. At 45 seconds my les were going numb and starting to hurt, No kidding!!!!!!!!

We head toward Jasper and make a stop at the Columbia Ice fields. I didn’t go up to the ice fields as I thought it was way over priced just to walk on a bunch of ice but it was cool to see it from the information center.

The next stop was Athabasca Falls just outside of Jasper. This was a very Cool place.


Next stop, Jasper Ahhhhhhhh, CN Country!!!!!! First stop was the train station where I was fortunate to see the Rocky Mountaineer which had just finished unloading it’s passengers.

————–And a REAL Train πŸ˜€

———————————————– ——I seen a few different road names while in Jasper and while up on the mountain after the gondola ride I got a few pictures up there as well of Jasper and the yard as well as some arrivals and departure trains. Enjoy

—-—–——How would you like this job?—————

——————————————————I hope you have enjoyed these post.
If you have never been to the Rockies it is really something you need to experience at least once in your life. There is no way to describe how big…….no, how huge these mountains are unless you see them yourself. I would also like to thank my brother and his wife for the opportunity to enjoy this trip and to see the awesomeness of these mountains. Darrell, Kim, Thank you very, very much!!!!!! I hope I wasn’t to much of a pain to you guys with all the train stuff too πŸ˜‰

See Ya
