We left Lake Louise fairly early. We got to see lots of stunning scenery that two years ago was frozen over. There are many lakes and with the sun shining, we think the pictures turned out very nice.

After a while we started to see signs that said runners on road. Pretty soon we caught up to some of the runners, and then there were a lot. At several places on the way there were large congregations of cars and runners. We found out later that there were 60 teams of 15 runners each running from Banff to Jasper. We thought it was kind of neat.
|These were among the first runners we saw.|
|The buses went a long way onto the ice.|

|This looks to over a mile to the Glacier.|

We stopped at the Ice Fields Center and took lots of pictures of the Glacier. Linda and Cindy’s Mom caught up with as while at the Ice Center. We took more pictures of us with the Mounty Moose and Bear. We also checked out the gift shop, but we didn’t get anything. Cindy’s mom did buy a few things. I think last time we were there, there were a lot more exhibits open, but this time there was a lot of construction going on. One sign showed where the glacier was in 1843 and we could see how much it had receded. It looks like more than a mile.
Coming off the mountain toward Jasper the road was very rough and didn’t get any better until we were almost to Jasper. I told Linda that the further north we got, the worse the roads were and now she sees why I said that.
Linda was following us and told us later that a bear ran across the road in front of her. We didn’t see any animals until we got through Jasper, but Cindy has so many pictures that I’m going to wait to put any more on the post, so stayed tuned.
Thanks for visiting.
