It's time to travel! No need to buy a plane ticket nor to book a rental vehicle! Just book a cabin, load the car and drive off! Jasper here I come! Being a five hour drive from home with check-in at 4:00pm, I hit the highway early to get a hike in mid way along the way.
I hiked to Bow Glacier Falls from Bow Lake, a hike I had not done before. Why not? I don't know! It was incredibly beautiful the entire way in and back out. I owned the place until the return portion just before descending the staircase.
The entire stretch of the Icefield Parkway was pretty today. The drive was easy with very little traffic. I made it to Jasper, checked into my cabin and now I don't know how I will ever leave it! The birds are singing constantly, I hear the Athabasca River running which is just across the street, and The Whistlers are looking all mountainy!
Yes, time to travel! I am in my own province, only a five hour drive from home, yet I feel like I am worlds away!
