Jasper Alberta Photographer – Adventure Is Out There

I sat in a cafe in Vancouver and tried to plan my next move. Where to? Traveling without a plan opens the doors to adventure.

Only one other passenger had left the bus with me and we headed to the local Tim Hortons the only place in town that may have a few people milling about this early.

They were married only a week before and hoping to honeymoon in the mountains. He had travelled on the greyhound with me for hours but this was our first conversation. It is amazing the people you can get to know early in the morning over a cup of coffee.


At seven I decided the sun had rose high enough to head towards Matt’s house and I waved goodbye to Don – it was time for a hike:
