PACKED UP READY TO GO

Site. One of Canada's most visited parks, with more than 2 million visitors coming each year to enjoy the wildlife and scenery. Jasper town itself is small and stretches little more than one side of a train station through which the longest trains I have ever seen pass. I watched a goods train the must have been over a mile long trundle it’s way through the station as I walked the ‘Discovery’ trail that covers the full circumference of Jasper town. I had reached the final destination of my route bang on schedule and now it was time to about-turn and head back down to Calgary. I was unsure whether I had chosen to do the right thing in covering the same ground on my way back but, surprisingly, the scenery seemed quite different on the return trip and it was like enjoying the whole route over. It was a road trip of a lifetime and I certainly consider myself very lucky indeed and I ‘Canada hardly believe my eyes’ to have seen such spectacular scenery – the scale of which a photo will never do justice. And, thankfully, I never needed that gun! WORDS BRUCE HOLDROYD
