THE AWESOME BEAUTY OF JASPER

Jasper National Park, at over 10,800 square miles, contains the largest icefield south of the Arctic Circle (Columbia Icefield). Jasper, along with Banff, Kootenay and Yoho National Parks and Mount Robson, Hamber and Assiniboine Provincial Parks in B.C. form the world-renowned Canadian Rockies. The park is famous for its landscapes and wildlife.
Archaeological finds indicate that people were travelling these valleys 9000 years ago. Aboriginal people assisted early European explorers in their quest to cross the Rockies nearly 200 years ago and Metis families were homesteading along the Athabasca River when Jasper National Park was established in 1907.

    Looks like you had better weather than us, even so, we still loved this area. Thanks for the reminder of our time here!

      I think we lucked out real good on the weather. We were there in June, 2003 - can't believe that it's ten years ago already.

    The Athabasca falls are really impressive! TheJasper National Park looks very "Alpine" and I more or less feel at home! This is a mouthwatering page!
