Last night we had another fine dining experience at a restaurant at Fairmont Jasper Lodge. While writing to order someone said there were deer across the lake. this is a photo I took from at least 500 metres away. t is amazing that at 8.30 pm the reflections of the deer could be seen in the water.
During dinner at 8.30 pm we spotted these deer across the lake-note the reflections in the lake

This morning we departed Jasper and travelled the Yellowhead Highway along the Fraser and Thompson Rivers. This is the same route followed by the early fur brigades of the Hudson's Bay Company as they paddled fully laden canoes to the Pacific Coast. Today was a drive of 278 miles or 447 km.

along the way we were extremely lucky to spot two grizzly bears beside the highway.
