Onwards to Jasper

As mentioned earlier, we had a real problem finding accommodation in Jasper, as most were showing as sold out with 90+ % of accommodation booked there by last November. I was hoping this was because...

Overnight in Kamloops

After 3 nights in Whistler, we have an overnight stop in Kamloops. We’ve booked this as it is almost half way between Whistler and Jasper. Again, we didn’t really fancy a 9 hour drive in one day!

I shall try my best with a trippie afterwards, although I imagine it will be very photo heavy. :)

Vancouver

The outbound flight is at 5:20 pm, so we’ll have time to partake in some refreshments in the lounge first, as well as on the flight. That may then help me get some sleep! ;)

The Rockies Tour, with a rocky run up.

Well it’s pre-trippie time, and I’ve actually broken my usual habit of remembering to write and post it the night before we fly! This time I’m almost 5 months earlier, but there’s a reason for that –...
