What a site to behold! This place is one that I desperately wanted to see. Surrounded by mountains with glowing light from behind left me feeling small and peaceful. Athabasca Glaicer is easily reached and if you want to you can pay $45 american dollars to take a bus out onto it. I opted out of this option as we were on a budget and I didn’t want to go without Adventure Buddy. It’s receding more and more every year so make sure you visit!
I got to see my favorite animal just outside of Jasper! A little ways off the road a sow was foraging while her three babies played. SOOOOOO CUTE! I’ve seen bears before but never with cubs. We sat and watched them for little while from a distance in the safety of the Subaru.
