Got to bed wearly around 8 pm - there was nothing else to do because of the rain and all my clothes were wet already ... It went on raining all through the night and the temperature fell to 5-6 C. It was so cold in the morning I quickly packed in everything and was off by 6:00 (a new record) for the 35 km ride to Jasper which got me warm enough after I stopped to get out my winter gloves. After a nice look around the town of Jasper I ended up in a nice restaurant with WiFi and I got into talking with a nice lady from Vancouver wh told me lots of things about the health system (she works in a home taking care of addicted people) in BC and about the First Nations in BC. An intersting item was the fact that sailors from Captain Cook's ships who had been forced aboard in Hawaii fled as soon as they landed on the BC coast and mixed with the First Nations and that family names even today tell that story. Well it's only early in the day but the weather is cold and I'm in no hurry to leave the warm restaurant - the plan is to do some sightseeing here in Jasper including a trip up the  tram ...

  1. Großartige Fotos, die Du immer machst! Mir war gar nicht klar, dass u solcche Temperaturunterschiede bewältigen musst! Mir ist aufgefallen, dass ich gar nicht auf das Foto mit dem Matratzenbezug reagiert habe, er passt hoffentlich gut. Und was ist eigentlich mit Dave? ist er nach Hause geflogen? Es macht Spaß, Deinen Trip zu verfolgen, weiter so!!
