Banff, Jasper & Glacier National Park - Jasper (Chapter)
This is the Jasper National Park chapter from Lonely Planet’s Banff, Jasper & Glacier National Parks guidebook.
Filled with the kind of immense scenery that has turned laconic office stiffs into romantic poets, Jasper is a rugged beauty; rawer and less tourist-pampering than its southern cousin Banff, and hence host to a more ambitious, adventurous type of visitor.
