Mellowest of Many Mellow Mornings

The forecast was for another steamy day, so we started out with an early morning hike up Old Fort Point Trail in Jasper. Initially a steep climb including over 150 wood and stone steps to another extraodinary view. The loop took us out on a more gradual descent and we enjoyed chatting with the two Canadian sisters we met on the trail.

We then drove over to a lake -- which turned out to face the Fairmont in Jasper. Spent most of the day at this idyllic spot -- beautiful and uncrowded. Kayaking, picnicking, reading on the shore. Alan went for a swim. And at the end of the day we took a short bike ride around the lake.

What about the bottom photo? Can you see the bugs in the web attached to the tree?
