We had beautiful weather for our recent drive through Jasper National Park.
There were exceptional views from quite a distance because of the clear day.
As we got closer it was very evident that spring had started. There was a lot of snow at higher elevations but below there was only a bit here and there.
The snowy peaks against the blue sky were breathtaking.
It was delightful to leave the very snowy and still relatively cold north to enjoy a bit of southern spring, especially in such a gorgeous area and in such beautiful weather.

yes, absolutely breathtaking
The Rocky Mountains are stunning, and we had such good weather. Cheers.
Always an exciting scene when driving West. You had a great day for your drive. Enjoy your Southern spring Lynette. Allan
Thank you very much, Allan. The weather was so great and it was wonderful to stop for a walk in those lovely springy conditions.
I concur with Allan. Have an enjoyable taste of spring.
Thank you very much, Anneli. We are back in Penticton and enjoying it very much.
A lovely time of year there.
It is, sunny and such a great temperature.
I can almost feel that fresh mountain air! Beautiful series!
Thank you very much! It was definitely a very beautiful day in the mountains. 🙂
There is something about mountains, so eternal, forgiving, forever.
Agreed, Jacqui. Thank you very much.
Gorgeous views with those bright blue skies! Looks like an incredibly scenic drive.
That drive is stunning, no matter when you do it, but this time the spring weather really showcased the mountains with their still-snowy peaks. Cheers.
Your photos could keep my sketching and painting inspired for a long time. I do love the mountains.
You’re very welcome to go ahead with my photos, Terry. It’s nice that they are helping to inspire your sketching and painting. 🙂 Yes, I love the mountains as well.
I will let you know if I do, so much to sketch so I never know when I will be inspired.
To enjoy scenes like that would be well worth the cold temperatures of winter. Easy for me to say here in relatively balmy New England.
This mountain is part of the Rockies and much farther south (I work in the subarctic) so the winter season is over now (there’s snow on the peaks, but they’re mountains 😉). You could always visit any time from now to the end of October; June and September are gorgeous months.
