What a great week, back in my favourite country.
Flew into Edmonton and then on to Jasper - too long a drive, I should have listened to my own advice and stayed a night in Edmonton but I was short of time and longing to get back to the Rockies.

Amazingly after 40 years of visiting Canada, I had never been to Jasper in the summer.  I certainly made the most of our time there- took the cruise to Spirit Island, went on a great side car tour up to Marmot Basin, saw bear and elk along the way - a magical couple of days.
Had some wonderful food too - especially memorable was the Tekarra Lodge Restaurant and the Pyramid Lake Lodge where the food and views vied for superiority.  Watched the England/Italy game in the Brew pub - food better than the game:(
