Day 86: Jasper

Great Day. Having studied Geology at university I got to view the Athabasca Glacier and explore it's Moraine: the first glacier I've seen in reality. Then it was a mainly downhill ride to Jasper.

During this evening's extended map meeting in the local brew pub it was agreed that we both would like to do the 3 hour geology walk up and onto the glacier, so we have booked the 10am tour on Saturday. Therefore, tomorrow we cycle back up to the glacier: Approximately 65 miles and 1,500m of climbing. Can't wait (and to quote Bruce F.: I mean that most sincerely folks).
