Jasper to Canmore - Part 2

After the avalanche, we headed down, down, down the steps of the Icefield Centre towards our jeep.

I thought a little extra energy was needed for all of the steps so I picked up some cookies on our way out of the centre - Salty Sweet Butterscotch Walnut Cookies. Oh My!

Back on Highway 93, which eventually became Highway 1, we saw more gorgeous scenery and some waterfalls.

We stopped at Bow Summit/Peyto Lake. We read that the area is closed for the season but we heard that you can hike in if you wish. There was a LOT of snow and a LOT of people.

The trail was slushy and very icy.

When we arrived at the Bow Summit overlooking Peyto Lake, it looked very different from our visit a few years ago - the lake was frozen. If you enlarge this picture, you may still be able to see the beautiful turquoise of the water/ice especially along the edges.

We were tired hikers but we never fell! Thank goodness I had Ray close by - I had many slips.

 We stopped at Bow Glacier

and continued on.

We arrived at our rental, a condo, in Canmore. We enjoyed a late dinner tonight on our balcony with this view of 3 Sisters.

A little while ago, I took the same photo as the sun was setting.

And one more at 10:15 tonight.

Our daylight is not quite as long, but close. It's been a long day of travel with lots of hiking. Our condo seems great. I think it's time for bed. Tomorrow the sun is supposed to shine on another great day!

  1. The hike was probably worth the views.....but boy, it looks dangerous to walk thru it. Does the snow stay continually here? Love the 3 shots of the sisters....great!
