Most hiking books are boring reference guides.

Not this one.

Me Reading the Done in a Day Jasper Hiking Book

Kathy and Craig Copeland wrote the book in a mindful way, to help you appreciate the experience of day hiking in this corner of the Canadian Rockies.

Introduction

The book starts by introducing you to hiking in Jasper National Park, one of the gems of the Canadian Rockies.  You’ll get a quick glimpse of what to do and where to eat in Jasper.  You’ll learn what topographic maps are preferred and what weather to expect.

The introduction also contains hiking advice.  You’ll learn how to avoid bear encounters, why you should carry a compass, and how to prevent hypothermia.

A few pages cover wilderness ethics, a topic every new hiker should read.  The authors write:

“We hope you’re already conscientious about respecting nature and other people.  If not, here’s how to pay off some of your karmic debt load.”

Visiting Jasper National Park in September offers several advantages compared to the peak months of July and August while still being somewhat of a peak month like its cousin June.

Videos « Jasper National Park Journal Travel Guide by DH Wall – Alberta, Canada

One of the best things about taking photos in the Canadian Rockies is that you don’t have to have a fancy camera or be an expert photographer to return home with several frame-worthy photographs. On my next trip to the Canadian Rockies, my goal is to spend part of the time taking pictures, so watching YouTube videos about photography has been a hobby lately.
