D.H. Wall’s Jasper Journal (JasperJournal.com) is the result of a great time spent in Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada and wanting to share that experience with others. The park offers a tranquil retreat into a land of extraordinary mountains, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, forests, and wildlife.
Preservationist John Muir (1838 – 1914) challenges us to be one with nature and I think Jasper National Park is the place to do this:
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
Jasper Journal was officially launched in December 2006. Articles are added regularly based upon my past experiences and the ongoing happenings in Jasper National Park in terms of tourist attractions, wildlife and the environment. Jasper Journal is mainly a blog supported by a photo gallery, maps, a directory and other resources. I hope this collection of information proves useful to fellow travelers considering a trip to Jasper National Park.
Jasper National Park is also a great place to take pictures no matter what your skill-set. I added a gallery to Jasper Journal to show off some of the hundreds of pictures.
Jasper is one of the world’s last great natural treasures. I hope you enjoy your journey.
I’ve been involved with the online world for about 20 years and over half of that in a professional role. I hold a few college degrees (including a bachelor’s in History – hence my frequent writing about Jasper history) and a graduate degree (MBA). My day job revolves around a big global corporate website and its integration with business but I still enjoy traveling and writing.
I enjoy travel. Besides Jasper and the Canadian Rockies, some of the other destinations I enjoy include Vancouver, Whistler, Edmonton, and Montreal, Canada. National Parks are great – wherever they are. I’ve also been to Grand Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, and Yellowstone National Park. In Europe, Spain (several times) and France were great places to visit.
