Kimi_jmThe World Heritage Jasper National Park (Jasper National Park) is a very famous national park in western Canada. It is one of the famous alpine national parks and a large national park in the Canadian Rockies. It is located in the north of the Rocky Mountains. Very wild animals and plants grow in it. There are Witch Medicine Lake, Patricia and Pyramid Lake, Marlene Lake and Marlene Canyon in the park. The lakes, mountains and rivers complement each other, showing the supernatural beauty of nature. There are also ancient and large ice fields in the Rocky Mountains, which attract people from all over the world every year. At the same time, it is also one of the world's famous dark night starry sky protection areas, and there is a dark night starry sky festival every ten years.
This time I didn’t have enough time to pass by, and I couldn’t experience the Dark Night Starry Sky Festival. Accommodation in Jasper Town is too expensive. I went to live in Xindun. My personal feeling is that Jasper National Park has more wild animals than Banff. When parking lots of people, you know that you must be shooting animals. This time I saw wild wolves, elk, wild sheep, and wild black bears walking on the side of the road. It was so cool.
西溪老翁Columbia Icefield (Columbia Icefield) Columbia Icefield (Columbia Icefield), located at the junction of British Columbia and Alberta, Canada, is the largest ice field in the Rocky Mountain system. The ice field lies between the Columbia Mountains at an elevation of 3,747 meters (12,294 feet) in the west and the Athabasca Mountains at an elevation of 3,491 meters (11,452 feet) in the east. There is Jasper National Park in the south and the highway to the Banff National Park in Alberta to the east. There is a visitor center and a large parking lot at the foot of the iceberg. After buying the ticket, take a big bike (a car with huge wheels) up the mountain and get off for half an hour after reaching the ice field. You can only walk in a small area and take pictures. We went up with spiked shoes, otherwise we would not dare to go.
The largest natural lake in Jasper National Park is 22 kilometers long, 1 kilometers wide, and 96 meters deep. There are cruise ships and water entertainment projects in the park, and there are many hiking routes around the lake. It is a very enjoyable thing to take a yacht in Lake Maligne. The cruise is traveling in the picturesque lakes and mountains. The lake is surrounded by rolling snow-capped mountains. The lake is calm and open. The water color is blue, green, blue and green, and the sky is white clouds. And snow peaks are set against the deep blue sky. The cruise is on a lake island, Spirit Island. You can visit the island for a short stay. This is a small island out of the water in the center of the lake. It is said to be the most beautiful place in Maling Lake. It was also bad luck. When we visited Maling Lake, it was cloudy and windy. At first, the boat had stopped sailing. Later, it was said that sailing in the afternoon, but the scenery and interest were greatly reduced by taking a cruise in the wind and cloudy days.
Athabasca Falls is located at the intersection of Highway 93 and Highway 93A, about 30 minutes from the town, and the parking lot is very close to the attraction, so you don't need to walk for a long time. From the information point of view, although it is not the highest waterfall in the Rocky Mountains, the intersection of large and small rivers makes it the most powerful and spectacular waterfall. There is a path around the waterfall, which can be viewed from different angles. The tour time is about 1 hour.
Athabasca Falls is located in Jasper National Park in Canada. It is a waterfall formed in the upper reaches of the Athabasca River. It is said to be the most thrilling in the Rocky Mountains Waterfall. The meltwater of the Columbia Ice Sheet merged into the endlessly turbulent Athabasca River. This pure and clear glacier flows from south to north to the Arctic Ocean to the vicinity of Jasper. The wide river gradually shrinks and follows the curve of the dense rocky forest. The gorge flowed all the way, and suddenly fell to a cliff of 20 to 30 meters, forming the galloping Athabasca Falls.
Athabasca Falls is not only famous for its 23-meter height and rushing water, but also because the waterfall water carries sand and stones, and the pothole formed by impacting the two shores with great force is amazing. This glacial water scoured these huge rocks year after year and day after day. After thousands of years of "cutting", the riverbed of this huge rock was finally washed out of a 25-meter-deep gorge, highlighting Athabasca. Waterfall is the beauty of the force that moves forward courageously and torrentially.
Although Athabasca Falls is not as shocking as Niagara Falls, its water volume is abundant and the scene is extremely spectacular. In summer, you can have picnics here, and the lower reaches of the waterfall is a paradise for many rafting lovers.
西溪老翁Pyramid Mountain and Pyramid Lake
Pyramid Mountain and Pyramid Lake are very close to the small town of Jasper. Pyramid Mountain has an approximate equilateral triangle shape. The exposed rocks are golden yellow and shining in the sun. Hence the name Pyramid Mountain. The Pyramid Lake is not large, so it is named because it is at the foot of the Pyramid Mountain. The golden pyramid mountain reflected in the emerald Pyramid Lake is truly sharp and angular, making it a famous scene in Jasper National Park. There are many wild animals here.
hahayaThe 4,000-dollar Mercedes-Benz tire is the biggest highlight. The glacier itself is not amazing, but the boundary monument of the glacier receding is quite shocking. It is good for awakening people's environmental awareness. Opposite the visitor center, the restaurants are not tasty, but the beautiful scenery can make up for it

It is 2 kilometers long, only 1 meter at the narrowest point, and the Ma Lin Canyon at the deepest point of 55 meters is a deep "crack" embedded in the rock, which is washed by the Ma Lin River day after day. It is different from the magnificent feeling of the Grand Canyon of the United States. The
tour route is marked by six bridges over the canyon. The six bridges are not close together. If you want to walk from the 1st bridge to the 6th bridge, it takes half a day. We only walked two bridges and felt the scenery was very general. We gave up the third and fourth bridges, then drove to the sixth bridge, and the scenery was flat.

From Lake Louise through an ice road to Jasper, the winter snow is full of romance. Walking on the Pyramid Lake, enjoying a cup of hot chocolate by the lake, the festive atmosphere is coming... Jasper's summer is always overcrowded, I didn't expect it to have a taste in winter.
Canadas Highway 93 in winter is a veritable icefield avenue, with snow-covered mountains rushing through the snowy Valentines Day across the Rocky Mountains.
In jasper, I only did two things, and I was self-proclaimed and self-satisfied at the hotel. One of the themes of this trip is probably to sleep in the legendary Fairmont Hotel in Canada. Jasper's Fairmont has a beautiful lake view room, and there are landscapes along the lake's hiking trails. It's hard to imagine the summer lake with green reflections. Beautiful scenery, I feel like I have to come again~ Christmas is coming, the festival smells so grand, I want to take the Christmas tree home.
This is a typical karst landform. The Ma Lin River flowing out of the upper Ma Lin Lake passes through it. A limestone gorge about 2 kilometers long and curved deep is cut on the limestone. The sides of the gorge are mostly vertical cliffs, and the narrow places are only a few meters wide. Because the drop is very large, the water is rushing, and there are more than a dozen waterfalls. The sound of the whole valley is roaring, which makes people feel terrified. Canyon waterfalls abound in front of the Ma Lin Canyon, typical karst terrain. There is an introduction to the formation of karst landforms at the entrance. It is a must-see for Jasper National Park.
The road leading to the top of the mountain like a silver chain is more dazzling in the sun. We must first shuttle the bus to the middle of the mountain. The glacier looks very close, but it is still quite far away, and the shuttle bus has been sitting for 10 minutes. The special sightseeing cars are all tailor-made for the ice glaciers. The light wheels are almost as high as mine. A piece of snowflake can be changed, but the glaciers can carry such a huge car, and you can imagine how powerful the cohesive force is. On the glacier, you can also see traces of glacial retreat caused by climate warming.
Open here, the driver will return the time before getting off the bus. We will not take the car we went to because of the missed time. After communicating with the staff, we have to wait for the space on the back to let us sit. As a result, the glacier glass bridge of the next scenic spot "Skywalk" has not been completed. Fortunately, we are self-driving, and there are several people who are on the same car on time. After meeting with us, we will take us with our own car. Going to the sky trail, so I caught up in the last second before the attraction closed, sweating.
The first time I tried camping, I didnt have enough experience to ask professional friends, and the process was a mess. Confidently bursting with a funny quick-open tent, a thin mat, and a sleeping bag called zero-degree use.
The temperature difference in Alberta in Alberta was extremely great, and the cold began to hit in the evening. I went to the firewood and picked up the firewood, and the roasting roots were baked. Sitting by the campfire and drinking the boiling water coming from the nearby town restaurant, I thought, if there are more than a few friends who play and sing, it would be great.
Walking around the camp, several people have caught me asking Dong to ask the West, asking questions about some camps. I know, big brothers and sisters, I am a rookie. I felt very strange. Later I found that the armbands on my sleeves were written in English. "national park" "camp leader", I dare everyone to be a camp staff. I took a piece of dirty clothes completely, it was a coincidence.
According to regulations, the fire must be extinguished after entering the night. Known as a sleeping bag that resists zero temperature, it did not perform well in Canada in the night of July. I still feel the coolness of sleeping while sleeping. I was going to shoot the stars, and I took a look at the tent at night. In this summer of the year, the "Night Starry Sky Festival" was held. The night sky was really densely covered with stars. But I was so cold that I had the courage to break down. As far as my three-legged cats are concerned, dont toss, or continue to sleep.
I was just dawning the next day, I immediately rushed to
Jasper Skytram, Canada: Taking a skytram up to the top of the mountain in order to see Jasper panorama view. It was very cold with lots of snow covering at the top when I been there in June. The view down is beautiful with the nice color of water from each lake.
The most amazing thing about me is here, I saw the enchanted scenery early in the morning.
If you don't meet with you in the scenery, where will I go, maybe it is a miracle that is destined to be like a meteor in an instant, which makes me surprised and obsessed, unspeakable, so I met. You, you are quiet and far-reaching, so stunned, dreamlike, unwilling to wake each other, just want to get closer, pick up the camera, leave the next moment. . . . . . The picture of
summer is always too flattering, and the sketch of autumn is more restrained. The thick color of the touch is the beauty of the season writing.
