This is the face I got when I asked her to say cheese.
We saw lots of wildlife on the way to Jasper. And I mean lots.
The kids soon discovered that one of their favourite things to do, is to throw rocks in the water.
Still some snow by the lake. The water was so cold!
Waterfall on the side of the road. Most of it was sill frozen though.
Patricia Lake, Jasper Ab.
Horseshoe Lake... the photo does not even do justice to the color of the water. It was breathtaking!
To get to Horseshoe lake, we had to hike a little while from the road. It was the first time we went hiking with the kids and they really enjoyed it. Though we never ventured very, very far since we were not exactly equipped (read water, snacks, bear spray, etc.), it was so much fun and we are definitely going to do it again!
Not far from the view above, when I turned around, I notice a cute little patch of juniper bushes and the berries were starting to become ripe. I don't know quite enough about juniper berries other than the essential oil, so I did not pick any. But they sure looked pretty!
As for the camping itself, it was an absolute blast! It was a great way to spend time as a family, and it really recharged my batteries.
I'm ready for more camping!
(I apologize for the lack of pictures of us and Jasper itself, but my camera died shortly after we got there and I did not bring my charger. But instead of being mad at myself about it, I was busy having fun and enjoying the moment. So I hope you can forgive me ;)
