I was really excited about our drive to Jasper and Jasper National Park. I wanted to come last year but we didn’t have enough time. Jasper National Park was established in 1907 and is the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies with 10,878 square kilometres of mountain wilderness. The town of Jasper is quaint and shaped like a boomerang. It’s very small (pop. 4,100) and easy to get around. A train runs along the outer edge of Jasper. Here is a nice map of the area.
