On our journey we decided to stop off in Banff for a stretch of our legs before continuing to Jasper.
It was starting to go dark and on our drive back, we saw this deer in the water. It looked so light and agile as it ran back to the shore.
On our second day we started with a little bit of shopping in Jasper High Street. After a bit of retail therapy, we decided to take a trip to Athabasca Falls. On the way, we passed a herd of Big Horn Sheep.
We think the highlight of our holiday was having an early dinner and heading back towards Hinton to the recently developed "Beaver Boardwalk". We aren't entirely convinced that a boardwalk made of wood is sensible when there are many active Beavers in the area, but for the moment it seemed sturdy enough! We were so lucky to see our national animal of Canada in the wild. It truly was fantastic to see.
On the drive back from Beaver Boardwalk, we spotted something on the side of the road. We were lucky enough to see our first Moose. It was very dark so the photos are terrible, but we were still incredibly pleased to have seen it.
It was another lovely visit to the Rockies, and again we pinch ourselves to have such an amazing place within driving distance.
