when i grow up / first aid kit

The Columbia Icefield

So … when you get to the Icefield you’ll see this place: 

Except it was rainy. Drizzly rain. 
The Centre is full of people from every place on the planet. 
It has a restaurant/cafeteria; a gift shop; a viewing deck; historical displays; toilets … lots of stuff.
This is also where you buy tickets for the Icefield Tour. They cost over 100 bucks each.
Then you head out back …

… and jump on one of these things. 
They’re called buses.

This is Shawn … or Shane?. Our driver.
You can see the drizzly rain. 

Below; MAP: Where we’re going ...

On the bus … 

10 minute bus ride?
Ice Explorer Depot ahead.

We made it.

The Ice Explorer. 
Not your average bus.

VROOOOOM !

Let’s ride !

Next … To the Ice!

    This a great post on your trip to Jasper. These are really great pictures of the ice explore buses. I also really like the picture of the mountain and the discovery center from the bus.
