rain 0 °F

A very rainy day today, but we decide to drive out to Miette Hot Springs anyway.

It turns out to be a good decision. The rain stops for most of the time we’re in the pool and the hot water feels good.

Today is not only rainy but it’s also cold, with a high around 50 degrees. So the lifeguards have winter coats on and the one is drinking coffee and the other has a winter ski cap on. That’s something you don’t see every day :-)

We stay at the hot springs for close to two hours. What else are we going to do in the rain?

On the way back to Jasper we pass more big horn sheep and an elk with a very large rack.

We do some window shopping at the Jasper gift shops, have dinner at A&W (again), and return to the trailer for the evening. It continues to rain steady. Despite the rain it looks like the campground is going to be full again tonight.
