It was Wonderful

  • We took a VIA train tour from Jasper to Dunster, BC, through Mt. Robson Provincial Park and it was absolutely wonderful! Both the conductor on the train and the driver of the van that took us back to Jasper from Dunster were pleasant and informative. The van stops at some points of interest, Mt. Robson Provincial Park included, and we were able to get lots of great pictures and pick up a souvenir or two. It was one of the highlights of our trip, never to be forgotten.
