Now we were gaining some elevation, and the mountain peaks started to be impressive.
Since we’re out in the middle of nowhere, let’s go check out Bear Creek Meditation Retreat!
The way in. LOL
Jim’s not afraid of anything, even an old wooden bridge. – Larra
The peak we’ve been chasing.
1.5 km to the Retreat.
Two young Canada Geese on the sandbar.
You know you’re out in the country when this bridge is your only way in and out.
Back on the Yellowhead Highway.
A waterfall across the river.
I’d been in Vancouver long enough that I didn’t even notice the wet weather! LOL – Jim
Look close. Another waterfall. We’re almost to Alberta.
We called this one Bald Mountain, because it was too steep for anything to grow on, and we didn’t have cellular service to look it up.
The Alberta Provincial line.
Welcome to Alberta! You have to pay to drive through our Province. And wait until you see our taxes on gasoline and beer! LOL
We made it! We’re in Alberta! Jasper is only 15 minutes away.
