We had hoped to go to the Angel Glacier on Mount Edith Cavell, but the road was closed due to landslides. When asked what he wanted to do, U admitted he would like to try kayaking. We went to Pyramid Lake where U rented a a little kayak and we spent a few hours paddling around on the lake.
On the road back into town there was an animal jam, with cars stopped all over the road. Since most of the tourists had climbed out of their cars and walking towards the forest I figured it was something harmless. Imagine my surprise when I realized it was a young bear up a tree! One particularly bright man was standing at the foot of the tree taking pictures.
All too soon it was time for us to leave Jasper, however, and head west to Prince George.

We stopped at Overlander Falls and admired the power of Canadian waterfalls again.
And we were amazingly lucky to catch Mount Robson, the tallest mountain in the Canadian Rockies, not hiding behind clouds. Of the dozens of times I've driven by the mountain I have only seen it without clouds a few times.
And we stopped in Valemont to see the salmon spawning.
We arrived in PG, to the natsukashi scent of the pulp mills. Nothing like the smell of pulp mills in the air to welcome you to town!
