Moving day today. Once again we took Trans Canada 1 north through Banff National Park.
We got very lucky and had a good luck at this grizzly bear walking along the fence and munching tidbits as it went.
Crossing seamlessly from Banff to 93 Jasper National Park, we ran into some showers
some ice packs that can still be called glaciers,
and crystal clear water everywhere
The roads were interesting to travel, even in the truck.
(looking back to see where we’d been.)
We got lucky again with this elk.
The road was but at last we reached our new home for the next week—Hinton/Jasper KOA. Hinton is actually about 40 miles from the park, but it’s the closest we could get. The rv park has long straight graveled pull-thrus, 50 amp full hookups, a small office/gift shop/grocery,
several small cabins,
a couple of picnic areas, this one with the only place you can have a campfire,
a small playground and a couple of buildings with showers, washrooms (as they are called in Canada), and laundries. Everything is expensive. Our 1 week stay cost over $300. Washers are $3 for 30 min, dryers are $1.50 for 30 min. The only thing that takes out some of the “ouch” is that the exchange rate is in our favor.
Brock and Leola next to us in our row.
This is a very nice, clean, friendly park. We will enjoy staying here when we are not out gallivanting around on the bikes.
Next, a short bike loop.
