Jasper National Park is located in Alberta in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. At a size of 4200 square miles, or 10878 kms, it is the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies. The park was established in 1907 after the Grand Truck Pacific Railway was built.
In the park you will find glaciers, hot springs, mountains, waterfalls, lakes, and plenty of wildlife. There are elk, bear, deer, moose, mountain sheep, caribou, and mountain goats, and most animals are able to be spotted from the roads, since they have no reason to be fearful of people. Along with the animals, there are also thousands of plant species in the park, including some rare wildflowers. The park is a beautiful place, with not only natural history, but a human history as well.
