Hiking in Jasper on the September long weekend.
I planned to lead a club hiking trip to Jasper on the September long weekend. But that fell through. It's one thing to lead a day hike, but another thing to organize a weekend one. I reserved a spot at the Whistler's group campsite way back in Spring, and paid the small $20 deposit. It would be a great cheap way for the club to enjoy the park!
But alas, due the rainy weather forecasted, I didn't have enough people interested and I had to cancel the club trip almost at the last moment.
We drove out on Saturday morning, stopping by some rivers, including one in Valemont, to see if any Salmon were spawing. We spotted some in Valemont.
Afterwards. we continued on to Jasper. As it was still raining, we decided to keep dry at the Jasper Park Lodge. It reminded me of hotel in the Shining, for some reason.
