Today, we slept in, enjoyed our breakfast in bed, started a fire in our wood stove and strolled along a glacier-fed lake and never left our hotel grounds. Yes, you can do a lot in Jasper and the best is that you will likely be all alone while doing it. We met three other couples on our hike around Beauvert lake (a 5-km loop). Tonight, we enjoyed some of the best sushi we’ve ever had and the restaurant only had 12 seats. We ended the night with a soak in the outdoor jacuzzi and pool, all alone!
Tomorrow, we hit the slopes at Marmot Basin, and with the 25 cms of fresh snow we got today, I can only imagine what the conditions will be like.
As we were hiking today, I couldn’t stop thanking my lucky star for being born in such a beautiful country.
