Awesome Alberta

The Rocky Mountains in Alberta take your breath away!
The snow capped peaks, lush valleys, rocky canyons, and
turquoise lakes are simply magnificent!!



First stop - Banff National Park - what a beautiful place!



After a quick visit with some friends from our area who were vacationing there and 
with a dear childhood friend who works in Banff,
we headed to our rustic campsite near Lake Louise.











Lake Louise never gets old - it's always such a pleasure to see in spite of hoards of tourists.












From Lake Louise on to Jasper Park we used a very interesting and informative
tour app on our iPhone - "GyPSy - Icefields Parkway"
What fun to make many stops along the way as suggested by the app
(once we figured out how to use it .... )


In Jasper National Park we met up with some new friends that we met at the Osoyoos
Rally and they showed us around the park and took us to Jasper Park Lodge and to a great restaurant
where we enjoyed a gourmet dinner and drinks .... what a great day it was!

Picnic on the dock at Lake Maligne


Couldn't resist "Waterloguing" this store front in Banff!
After leaving these beautiful parks - we headed further North to see this sweet face!



Our little love!

Till next time ......... turning this rig around to make the long trek home!

  7. Oh goodness! Your little love is growing so fast. What adorable teeth and a beautiful smile.

    This post reminds me of that folk song about heading to Alberta..."the good times are all done and I must be moving on..." or something. It sure is pretty there!
