After a restful sleep at the Costco we head out early along Highway 5 towards Jasper, Mt Robson is absolutely stunning with it’s layered rock covered in snow. Up through the mountains we see great swaths of dead pine trees – the battle against the pine beetle is far from over.

We spend the late afternoon/evening in Jasper National Park taking the scenic drive to Maligned Lake a beautiful glacier green lake.

The Maligne Canyon is deep and very narrow in places with tremendous water forces carving out layers of rock forming miniature Grand Canyon.

During our time here we spot a small bear hiding in a tree from all us tourists as well as a large Eagles nest,two more black bears and numerous elk munching grass alongside the road.

We overnight in Hinton at the 24hr Frison Bros market which has a large sign Welcoming RVers to stay the night we share this with 8 other RV’s
