Jasper is such an incredible place. One of our favorite places in Canada. The lakes and the mountains here are amazing. We took a hike up the Sulfur Skyline Trail up behind Miette Hot Springs. It’s an amazing out and back hike (‘only’ 8km R/T – and ‘only’ 700 meter elevation gain) that has some of the most amazing views we’ve had on any hike we’ve done.
Avoiding quicksand.Chipmunk visitor up at the summit.It started to get really cold at the top. Glad we took our hats and jackets!Hard to tell in this picture, but it started SNOWING (!) on our way down.
When we got back to the base of the hike we rewarded ourselves with a dip in the hot springs. It was like being in a HOT tub with col rain sprinkling on your head and shoulders. A perfect reward after a what turned into a chilly hike.
