Rainbow at Athabasca Falls, Jasper National Park

J is for Jasper National Park with Snowmobiles and Rainbows, A to Z Challenge 2013

J is for Jasper, both Jasper National Park, and Jasper, AB, the town.  I was first there as a girl in the early 1970’s, and remember the giant vehicle that took us out on the Columbia icefields, with a conveyor belt contraption on the wheels.  It was red, but according to a photo from a previous decade, they came in many colors.

One of my favorite painters, Canadian Lawren Harris, has a painting of Maligne Lake.

In 1996, Stratoz and I took a trip to Jasper, venturing up Whistler Mountain in a tram, and seeing a panoramic view of the town of Jasper.

We also visited Athabasca Falls, which was intensely loud with the sound of water hitting rocks.  This rainbow floated up, seemingly within our reach.
