“Must not miss Jasper,” my well-traveled friend advices. “It is a town you will adore.” Anyone who knows me knows that I love quaint, rugged towns and this little town where peaks crown the horizon in every direction is indeed a town I have regarded as one of my top picks. The largest and the most northerly of Canada’s Rocky Mountain National Parks and one of the group of 4 national park and 3 provincial parks which together are designated by UNESCO as the “Canada Rocky Mountain Park World Heritage Site”.
Quieter then the 2 previous towns, Jasper feel more like a friendly small town than a tourist town. It is because nearly one quarter of Jasper’s population is not dependent on tourism. Canadian National, Canada’s largest railroad, employs hundreds of people who call Jasper home.
If you’re into small quaint towns (filled with abundant wildlife) as I am, this rugged, not-so-little piece of wilderness will become your favorite spot as well once experienced. In my next few post, you’ll see why. So consider this an intro to one of my favorite places.
