Mt Robson Provincial Park, British Columbia

Sunday, August 5, 2007

semi-overcast 0 °F

We spend most of the day in the car driving to Mt Robson Provincial Park, which is about an hour west of Jasper National Park. The campgrounds in Jasper fill up early in the day, so we decide to stop at Mt Robson for the night. This campground is huge, but has also been filling up the last few nights. Apparently the first weekend in August is the most popular weekend of the summer for camping in Canada since it's the last 3-day weekend before school starts.

The scenery is okay but nothing special today,

until we get close to Mt Robson, the tallest peak in the Canadian Rockies.

We’re at Mt Robson Meadows Campground, a very nice provincial park. The campsites are large and lots of trees between campsites. Quite different from many of the parking lot RV parks that we’ve been staying at recently.

We set up camp and walk over to the visitor center. Mt Robson’s top is covered with clouds, but it is still picturesque.

Then we have dinner and spend the rest of the evening relaxing around the campfire. Of course if there’s a campfire at the Engelman campsite, there are always s’mores :-)
