A few weeks ago, my family and I escaped the city and headed out of town for a little road trip to Jasper. While the dark cloud of the pandemic hanging over us the past several months has certainly impacted our ability to travel like we usually do, we didn’t want it to stop us entirely! Exploring destinations in our own province, like Jasper (where, we haven’t been in YEARS) is certainly a silver lining!
I had forgotten how strikingly blue the lakes are, how clear the water is, how majestic the mountains are and how crisp the air is! There is definitely something about a change of pace and scenery that is so fresh and invigorating.
It was the break that we all truly needed- we hadn’t even realized how much! With two small kids, traveling can be stressful at the best of times. So much to pack! So much to remember! Disruption to sleep and routines! What if someone gets sick or injured? While it is certainly every mothers prerogative to worry, having Alberta Blue Cross coverage truly helped me to relax and just take it all in. After a really challenging few months, we were really able to sit back and live our best Alberta Blue Cross life!
We even treated ourselves to the spa!
If you are interested in taking a trip out to Jasper, here are some of our favorite (kid- friendly) activities to partake in:
Hike at Maligne Canyon
Visit Lake Annette/ Lake Edith
I captured these images on a morning Run! Gorgeous, right?!?
Paddle around Lac Beauvert
You can also enjoy a relaxing and scenic walk around Lac Beavert!
Columbia Ice Field Jasper Sky Tram/ Sky Walk
Stroll downtown Jasper
Enjoy pizza at Jasper Pizza
Hope these tips help you plan a little getaway so you can get out of town and #LiveYourBestABCLife too!
