Since before it was a national park, Jasper, Banff and the rest of the Canadian Rockies were a place away from everything.
It was a rare breed of people who could live here and fewer came to visit.
Today, it is easy to fly into Calgary or Edmonton, rent a car, rent a comfortable hotel room and spend your days experiencing the wild of the Canadian Rockies.
Nature is still calling.
To me, travel is a way to get the most out of life. And we should travel.
This Jack London quote relates to the experience and why so many people visit Jasper National Park and the Canadian Rockies.
“The proper function of man is to live, not to exist; I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them; I shall USE my time.” Jack London
The picture is of a place that should be experienced: Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park.
