Jasper-Banff Cache Adventure

At the end of July, Joe Teton joined us and Anyatoo as we went off to Jasper and Banff for the weekend. On the way to our first stop in Jasper, we stopped in Hinton to show off a few of the local caches. Once in Jasper, we traveled to Pyramid Lake, the summit of Whistlers Mountain, and around the town-site collecting memories and caches. After two nights, we headed south to Banff, stopping along the way to visit wonderful locations with a few of them having caches and earthcaches. We spent two nights in Banff as well. The first day we headed back to Lake Louise via a secondary scenic highway again stopping at many locations and finding various caches, including a cache hidden in an old 1930's car that was abandoned long ago. That night we tried to go to the Banff Upper hot springs but were turned away due to someone blowing chunks in the pool. Then a big storm rolled in and we hid out in a Boston Pizza. While there, Torran turned on the GPS and discovered a cache across the street... we just had to go get it... after supper. The next day we headed home stopping by some Drumlins for a quick cache... last one of this trip.
