I’m back in Jasper for another summer!
Mid-May had me Alberta bound. A friend of mine was also heading west from Ontario and had a car, so the two of us drove out together. We spent five days crossing the country – from Toronto and busy 400 series highway driving; to the northern Ontario mining town of Timmins; past the shores of Lake Superior to distant Thunder Bay; on to the flat prairies of Landmark, Manitoba; across more prairies for a night in pretty Sasktoon; and finally our arrival in the Rocky mountains.
We stayed almost every night with people we knew and ate a lot of sandwiches along the way. I think every Canadian should have to drive across our country – or part of it – at least once, because it really gives you a true sense of how big it is. Especially driving through Ontario, which took three days and felt like would never end.
A few photos from our journey below:

Below pic is me and my road trip friend, Annie, driving through Saskatchewan… which way is it to Alberta?
Finally, back in the mountains (photo from Annie):
I’m settled back in at my old job in Jasper, guiding horseback rides in the mountains all day. I’ll try to post short & sweet blog posts whenever something noteworthy happens. This will be my third summer spent in Jasper, and there’s still plenty here that I have yet to see and do.
As always, the world keeps amazing me with its natural beauty.
