The original plan for today was to go to Edmonton and stay there for the night. You can see from our route today that we ended up in Jasper. I think this may have been the most eventful day of my life!
Edmonton, we proceeded directly to the Muttart Conservatory across the river from the central business district. I took a few pictures of the skyline and then we moved on to the Conservatory. It was divided into four separate pyramids including an arid climate, temperate, tropical, and one filled with blooms that change depended on the season.
West Edmonton Mall. There was a bit of construction but we figured things out and ended up there relatively problem free. It's definitely a large mall but neither one of us are mall people and we don't enjoy making purchases on a whim (excluding food of course). We didn't buy anything but walked all through the mall and took a bunch of pictures.
Jasper City in Jasper National Park. This was definitely the right idea. We found a hotel for about $15 more and it has a pool and is surrounded by mountains! If it wasn't the off season, this room may have cost upwards of $200. Let's hear it for cheap off-season rooms!!
