You Do Have To Watch For Open Water

Snowshoeing in Jasper: The Watchtower Canyon Tour

I have succumbed to the charms of winter in Jasper. Apart from the mountain studded blue skies, sunshine and warm temperatures - even in February, it's the sheer number of adventures available within minutes of town that has me hooked.

Hiking the Henry MacLeod Trail in Jasper National Park

If you hike the Henry MacLeod Trail - beginning at the far end of Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park, you're in for a treat.

However, it's a great hike…

Beautiful Backdrop At The Campsite At The Far End Of Maligne Lake

Kayaking Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park
