Last week my mom, sister, and aunt flew out for a vacation in beautiful Jasper National Park. Here’s more photos than you wanted to see from our trip. Not pictured here is our super awesome whitewater rafting trip on the Sunwapta River. It was super awesome.
First we stopped at my research site and hippy playground, the Aspen Centre
Then onto Jasper National Park
Hiking in the Miette Hot Springs area
Almost to Utopia Pass, but not quite…

View of the town of Jasper
Oh funny, why are Weezie and Celesta coming back the same way they came?
MAYBE BECAUSE WE GOT WAY TOO CLOSE TO A BEAR! (It was so cool.)
(Not everyone thought the bear was cool.)
Mom’s favorite friends on the trail. (That’s saracsm. Mom hates the horse poop.)
Edith Cavell Mountain and Meadow
Angel Glacier on the right and the remains of Ghost Glacier on the left

Mom, Celesta, and Weezie, thank you so much for coming out and exploring Jasper with me! I’m so happy we got to take advantage of this beautiful Canadian park while we had a Brainard in the area 😉
