June 14 - We left Mt. Robson Provincial Park and travelled back to Jasper. This time we went south. Many areas of the road had rockfall warnings and large nets hung over the cuttings to catch smaller stones. Although it was still early in the season and many of the roads to the higher mountain views and waterfalls were closed, we saw plenty of wonderful scenery.
Athabasca Falls, 23 metres high

At the end of the day, we headed west to Golden, B.C.
I retired from the University of Arizona, where I coordinated distance learning. New enthusiasms include learning about digital photography and photoprocessing, archaeology, theatre, and observing the natural world around me.
