We stopped to look at some mountain goats and sheep
This is a strange photo as it looks as though the goat is giving birth!
The sheep blended in so well with the craggy cliffs that it was difficult to see them.
As the weather was looking good we decided to take a cable car up Mount Jasper. Once out of the cable car you can walk another 400m to the top. There was a lot of snow around the cafe/cable car but a path had been created through the snow. It was nowhere near this deep once we left the confines of the cafe area.
Once at the top, there were great views of the surrounding peaks.
We were amongst 35 people that were stranded. The wind was gusting at over 60kph and needed to be below 40kph for us to get down. We were provided with free food and hot drinks and just as we thought we would be spending the night up there, the wind dropped and we were able to go down.
It was after 9pm by the time we checked into our log cabin a couple of miles outside the town of Jasper.
About 10m from the cabin was the river with some spectacular views but the light was fading.
Marilyn spent the evening getting to grips with a bear banger. A pen like noise making deterrent. Maybe bear spray would have been the easier option!
