This long weekend my family piled into the truck and drove to Jasper for our cousin’s wedding.

I took advantage of my family sleeping in this morning to do a quick run to Pyramid Lake.

Overlooking Jasper

The lake is 6.5km from Jasper by car but I followed some trails leading out of Jasper so I’m not really sure how long the route is by trail. I followed the trail marked ‘2’ the whole way.

There are signs everywhere warning hikers to stay 30 metres away from the elk, but the elk seem to like chilling out right next to the trail. A couple times I looked up and realized there was an elk standing 10 metres away from me. I was always more startled than they were.

I want to hike Pyramid Mountain now!
