Day 19 - Jasper AB to Edmonton AB

September 2017

We wake to a brisk 0 C or 32 F but it is just gorgeous as we walk to the lodge for coffee. Seriously, for the price here you think they'd have a coffee pot in the room! Room Service would be crazy, as it is a distance from the main lodge.

We were warned that there were elk about and it was rutting season, no sightings but they were obviously around!

As we left these locals were crossing the road.

We lose an hour on this portion.

 We drove into Jasper but didn't stop not as pretty as Banff or Whistler.

Nope, no WILDLIFE again.

We lose sight of the magnificent Rockies as we move further into Alberta.

Tim Horton beckons us for breakfast sandwiches.

There is a sign saying there is smoke but this seems more like fog.

 The world's largest dragonfly is in Wabamun!

We detour as I see a sign for the wheat elevator museum.

It doesn't appear to be open.

Our GPS takes us to a nice suburban neighbourhood, half an hour from our destination, that's what happens when you enter avenue instead of street!

We check into the West Edmonton Mall Inn, booked on points, across from the mall, entrance 6.

It is the largest shopping mall in North America and the tenth largest in the world (along with The Dubai Mall) by gross leasable area. It was the world's largest mall until 2004.The mall was founded by the Ghermezian brothers, who emigrated from Iran in 1959.

As we enter it is restuarants and bars.

Nothing to identify the sculpture.

Paying tribute to the oil workers, but no sign on the sculpture.

Lots of fun in the Haloween store.

Galaxyland is the world's largest indoor amusement park features more than 27 spectacular rides, attractions and play areas for all ages.

Day 12 - Spokane WA to Port Angeles WA


  1. I'm so enjoying your photos, especially of snow capped mountains.
