    It has  been one month today since we boarded a plane in Austin for Seattle and the beginning of our journey.  We've traveled 2,518 miles since we left Anchorage and have driven in Alaska, Yukon Territory, British Columbia, Northwest Territory, and now, Alberta.  Today we arrived in Jasper National Park, part of a chain of mountains making up the Rocky Mountains that extend down through Colorado

and New Mexico.  We are surrounded by mountain peaks, some rocky or tree-covered, some covered in snow even though it is late July.  Kettle lakes appear often on the road leading into the park, some with rock walls rising from their edges.  It is beautiful, everywhere you look.

    We drove into Jasper today in a strong cross wind that made it difficult to control the cover we have strapped over the backseat.  We had the top down so we could see the mountains better and the wind kept catching the fabric and causing it to balloon up.  And the weekend traffic was very heavy as this is the way to Jasper, Banff, and eventually, the United States.  We were relieved when we got in and could just lay down and rest for an hour.

    We are staying in a B&B in the town of Jasper, a more economical choice for an expensive resort town, but we are sharing a bath with the French couple in the next room.  (I'll let you know how that goes.)  We did some window-shopping this afternoon, just taking it easy, and plan a drive to Maligne Lake tomorrow.  A clerk in a native crafts store recommended it as his favorite place and off the main road through the park.  It will be nice to not have to pack up everything in the morning and just sightsee a little.
