First picture is of Tangle Falls in Jasper Park.
Second is of Wicox Pass, from near the top of Mt. Athabasca in Jasper park. You can see the Banff/Jasper hwy on the left.


My all time favorite picture. It is of Mt. Kitchener at night. I took this from my room window back in the 80s. Jasper Park.

Athabasca Glacier. You drive past this on the way north to Jasper, from Banff.

I lived in this area for 7.5 years.

That ice cap on top of Kitchener is about 500 feet thick: gives some perspective.
The Glacier was/is 5 miles from the hwys camp I ran for Parks. Play spot in the summer .

Awesome pics, living in Arizona we do not get to see the beauty of a real winter.  The best I can do is a friend in Iowa who has a preserve that I can deer and pheasant hunt on.

Thanks,

Mike

Since I posted a picture of Wilcox Pass, I've been thinking of some other pictures of the area. Like from where I took that picture.
In this first one, I'm standing in the Pass, looking back at Mt. Athabasca (upper right corner)

In this next one, I'm standing on the ice, part way up the mountian.

This last one shows the ten minute "walk" to the summit of Mt. Athabasca.

I'm not in the mountains anymore. Lived many places since those pictures were taken.
I'll see if I can find some fall pictures from places. Best/most colors "up here" are in the east, where the hard woods live.
In the park, most trees are conifers.

Look at the second last picture, the "face" is the center bowl and to the right is a "slope" going up to a point. That climb is called Silverhorn. This is the route a friend and I took .

Reeves the pictures are a treat for all. You can tell that God has truely blessed the land there and is smiling on all of you. No wonder why you say no way to living down south. How far are you out from the nearest town? We are about 30 minutes from the nearest Wal-Mart and a hour away from the nearest Lowes and my wife thinks shes in the middle of no where lol. I wished it was more like a days drive there and back from any city but thats all but gone nowdays.

When living there from 82-89 I was an hour drive to Jasper town site. 1.5(ish) to Lake Louise, two hours to Banff.

If you have Google Earth & DSL or some high speed, you can see there is very little in that area. LOVED IT !
