After Horseshoe Lake in Jasper National Park we visited Jasper, the town, where we had a snack and picked up a sandwich to eat on the way home.
We stopped to eat that sandwich along the North Saskatchewan River (which is in the province of Alberta, not the province of Saskatchewan!) The River begins in the Columbia Icefield, flows south next to the Icefields Parkway before heading east at Saskatchewan Crossing. It then flows across northern Alberta and much of northern Saskatchewan (the province) before flowing into the Saskatchewan River. We may at this point have been in Banff National Park, rather than in Jasper National Park, but I never did see a boundary sign between the two parks.
In keeping with the advice that you should turn around and see what there is to photograph in the direction away from your primary interest, I got these shots of Mount Coleman and Mount Kerkeslin (2956 meters, said the sign.)
Next week we explore along the David Thompson Highway.
