  • From the new guy

    It was about 20 years ago that I first encountered Jasper. Back then I was a tourist enjoying one of my first exciting excursions through Northern Alberta and British Columbia. Engraved in my mind is the indelible memory of riding the Jasper Tramway. I remember being in awe of the breathtaking scenery. I vividly remember the mountains, the river, and the unique configuration of the town-site.

  • A Few final words

    Before I spill the things

  • Natural beauty right under our noses

    Like most people, a big part of what attracted me to Jasper was the natural beauty of this place. Exploring the rugged mountains, the crystal-clear lakes, and the vast forests is an awe-inspiring experience.

    Personally, I prefer the mountains in the winter but in the past few weeks it has been nice to see the variety of wildflowers blooming in the valley and up in alpine meadows. While hiking along any of Jasper’s trails, you can’t help but notice the splash of colour they add to the landscape.

  • Parks interpreter produces rare kayak video

    The unusually high water in Jasper in the past few weeks may have created problems for motorists and campers, but for kayakers it created a once-in-a-decade opportunity.

    An exhilarating route known as “Excalibur” follows the outflow of Medicine Lake and enjoys an almost mythical status in the kayaking community, as it so rarely exists.
