On July 11th we set out on our annual family vacation to Penticton. We traveled with Grammee and Grandad and were going to go half way on day one to Valemount, BC. On our way we decided to stop at the breathtaking Maligne Canyon in Jasper, AB to go for a hike and take a break from driving.

After the canyon hike we went into Jasper for supper. On the way we saw...
A huge elk. In a few posts from now you will see another pic of this guy. On our way home 2 weeks later. We are pretty sure anyway...
We stopped for dinner at our favorite Jasper restaurant, the L&W.
Mom ordered calamari and this was one of them. We thought it looked exactly like the sorting hat from Harry Potter. Eh? Eh? If I didn't eat it we could have made millions!!!
After supper went on our way to Valemount.
A picture at a gas station in Blue river (actually on day 2)
A couple of baby cubs watching the adults fight
As much as driving for so long sicks the country is beautiful
Once at the campground Mum let Zach help park the trailer (pull through site)
Once parked we decided to let off a little steam before bed
The next day we drove straight through to Penticton
