Jasper National Park : : Alberta Canada
This week we’re back into a few old favourites. I’m going to be dilligently working on new releases from Tasmania, Victoria and South Australia but it does take time.
It isn’t very often that you have the chance to drive to a glacier, park your car and after a 10 minute walk be at the base of a gigantic ice-field.
One of the interesting things that Parks Canada have done here is to show how the glacier has receded over time by placing markers of where it has been in the past. If I had driven up when the first building was constructed, I wouldn’t have even had to make the 10 minute walk – the glacier would have been right there!
