We have just returned from Whitecourt, Ab. where we had the wonderful surprise of seeing the Rockies by Train. We drove to Jasper and from there boarded the Train, we had reservations which is a must! From there we went for three and a half hours through the mountains!! It was the most beautiful and comfortable way for us. We were blessed with wonderful weather and all was clear and picurtesque!! Mount Robson was absolutely breath taking as was the wild life. We saw bears, deer, elk, and even two little bear cubs in a tree, one hiding behind the other, what a memory this has given us. We were met at Dunster by a van that returned us safely to Jasper. The tour guide driving the Van was very informative and we learned lots of wonderful things. So if you get the chance take a Train Tour, it is wonderful!! We stayed in Jasper for the weekend and we couldn't stop talking about our TrainTour. Be sure to take lots of pictures, we did!!
