So in and around Jasper there’s a handful of reasonably unusual vehicles. Or at least not hugely common.

This baby has 550,000km on the odometer.

Note the all-natural free-range organic parking brake. Other than that it’s looking a lot better than my MJ at 530k.

But BC plates tell me it’s from a much more mild climate than ‘Toba so I feel slightly justified. Also the MJ definitely does not get babied... It’s a Jeep. Not all the roads it sees are paved. Or roads.

This is where the trail took me. Bald Hills.

Did you guys know I live in a postcard? I just got my contract extended until the end of March, so I’m here all winter. I’m pretty excited, not gonna lie.
