Jasper-Banff National Park

This is a big place that is very scenic - lots of people.  We came in from the north thru Jasper.  Lots of mountains along the road.

Jasper is a busy place,  They had a bear trap on display.  Most people are not feeding bears accidently, there are very strict rules about leaving stuff around your campsite that could make bears dependant on campers for food.    Sometimes they trap them and relocate them, sometimes they have to shoot them if they keep coming back.     Mary Anne explained how they work to Effie, so she wouldn’t get caught

She made one of the best comments of the trip  - said to Effie  “No kissing,  - your tongue is much longer than mine.”

Lake Louise is as pretty as they get.
