We arrived in Jasper National Park late in the afternoon.
First stop was down town to get some groceries and fill up with gas. We found ourselves in a world of RVs… sadly realizing that we were no long queens of our own domain. It was literally a sea of bright and shiny RVs packing the street, lining every inch of the curb. Renting campers must be a popular past time for Canadians as it was clear that most of these vehicles were brand new, very clean and most were label with a large orange maple leaf with the slogan “Adventure Canada!” or “CanaDream.” I could have sworn that people were looking at my beat up and filthy Oso with distaste.
Can you find Oso in the picture below?
A little closer…..
From town we headed into the park and down the Icefield Parkway.
It was extremely gusty at the parking lot where I hoped to spend the night. There were very few people around, and since there was only one other camper in the lot, I felt free to let the poodles off leash to explore the rocky outcrops near by.
There we were surprised by some cloud breaks
and a special rainbow treat.
