I had a very good sleep at Best Western Motel in Valemount last night. Went to the lobby and got 2 complimentary coffees first thing in the morning. I took off at 7:15 am.
I left early because the weather forecast said that it will rain more later in the day. It was beautiful crossing the Rocky Mountain through Mt. Robson to Jasper. It has snow capped mountains on two sides as I travel east through the valley. Many of the mountains have multiple small glaciers. It never ceases to amaze me to see water on high mountains, such as lakes at 1,150 m elevation.Some lakes are so calm that I can see perfect reflections of mountains and trees inverted images. Some lakes are so buffeted by wind that it has some small white caps.
