train 2012:03 western Up

Farms in the high prarie of Alberta
One of many grain elevators
Many many little ponds among the fields
Even a few trees, now and then
A brief stop in Edmonton
Some of us stretched our legs
A new observation car is inserted ...
... in the middle of the train
Big wood processing plant near Hinton
The Athabasca River, east of Jasper
Beautiful Jasper National Park
Twisted strata revealed in the cliffs
At a bend in the river
We saw a small herd of elk
Jasper is surrounded by mountains
The Pyramid Falls
We had a great view out an open door ...
... thanks to Claudine, our attendant
The train slowed to a crawl ...
... so we could have a leisurely view
We heard the roar before we could see ...
... the water
As we rolled past, we felt the mist ...
... on our faces and arms
My attempt at a stereoscopic view
