IJune Moon over Patricia Lake took this photo in late June. It was almost midnight yet still bright out. You sure do get your money’s worth when you vacation in Jasper. Every day is like almost 2 days anywhere else with all the daylight this beautiful Northern Rockies park enjoys.
In the summer, you have to be pretty patient, waiting for the dark skies to arrive. But, when they do, the show is amazing.
If you’re lucky enough to own an iPad, be sure to install GoSkyWatch Planetarium for iPad — the astronomy star guide. It’s an incredible teaching tool for zooming in on & identifying constellations.
What is it about rainbows that makes people stop in their tracks? One thing is for sure, top off a raft trip with a rainbow at the very end and you’ll know you’re sure not in Kansas anymore!
We love great deals just as much as anyone. How great that The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge has special promos for BC & Alberta Residents: Come play in your back yard, Jasper! Of course, while you’re staying at the lodge, take advantage of shuttle service to come out rafting.
