The view from…Jasper

Posted by & filed under mountains & resorts.

So after a few days checking out Banff, we headed along the highway, through more incredible mountains and past the Colombia Icefields, to Jasper.
 
Talk about chalk and cheese. Where as Banff is a slick, modern town with a Louis Vuitton and Gap, Jasper is a low level, simple small town with very few chain stores or restaurants and some comedy retro accommodation.
 
The railway line runs down the opposite side of the high street – carrying a succession of huge industrial trains plus the occasional tourist carrier.
