We made our way into Jasper National Park the next morning and found out we didn’t have to pay the entrance fee because it was Canada Day; perfect timing.
Jasper National Park is the largest park in the Canadian Rockies
Weather can look iffy looking in one direction…
…and great looking in another.
We rode up close next to towering mountains…
…and the Athabasca Glacier.
We stopped in town…
…to see the Banff Springs Hotel.
My reaction when Amanda mentioned the possibility of us checking into the presidential suite
On our way to Calgary where the brother of my dad’s friend offered to put us up for a night.
The following morning he took us out for breakfast at a Chinese restaurant.
It’s been a long time since we had dim sum; a Cantonese term for various types of Chinese food served in small portions.
Shrimp dumplings or “ha gow”; a dim sum essential
A mini tour of Calgary was in order following dim sum
Happy birthday eh!
Oldest park in Canada.
Ah, real Chinese food.
