About 50% of the time it is covered in cloud! We made a quick stop at Moose Lake which is close to Jasper, unfortunately no moose were seen :( Having said this we were lucky to spot an elk very near to the campsite entrance :) we all jumped out of the van to take ...

They were just passing through, grazing as they went. We could have touched them from the driver’s seat! They drifted off a little so we got out to get some more photos, but then they returned and two of them slumped down and bedded down for the night just ...
