Whistler Campground, Jasper National Park, Jasper, Canada

At six AM we were in the service department of Okotoks Ford to try to get in line for a service appointment. Julie Niles, the service advisor, made us feel right at home and as if we were her only customer and concern.

We were made to feel right at home, Ginger and all. Actually, Ginger was her usual self – attracted all the attention.

By 0900 Charli, the mechanic assigned to us, had found the problem (a loose hose), fixed it, replaced the coolant and we were on our way. No charge for labor and a discount on the coolant. A wonderful dealership staffed with caring and competent people. If you are in the area and need help they’ll be there for you.

We wanted to take the Ice Road Parkway so we skirted around Calgary on 22 and then took Route 1 to 93, according to most sources the most beautiful road in North America. I have to admit I was stunned by the beauty of this road and the really good condition it was in. As usual, words fail so just enjoy the scenery.

I wonder why no one was swimming.
The water is an amazing blue green color.
The mountain vistas are stunning and around every corner.
How about looking at that out your cabin door?
I could pump gas here all day long! How many gas stations have you been to with this view?

“The road was a ribbon of highway…”
The Icefield Glacier – and hordes of tourists.

They have built natural bridges so the bears, elk and other animals can cross over the road safely. Such a great idea!
Our home for the night, Whistler Campground. Beautiful secluded sites.
Our neighbors for the evening…
Apparently they prefer these but will snack on us if hungry enough.

That’s all for tonight. It has been a spectacular day. Tomorrow’s target is Grande Prairie.
