The winter in Jasper, January 2010 was unusually warm. As you can see in this picture, what would normally be iced over and white has only a skiff of snow at the higher elevations. The sun was low, as it never climbs too high in winter there, casting a warm glow to the mountain top. We were in transit, so we didn't have the time to explore the area as much as we would normally like, but we liked how the little bit of snow enhanced the fine contours of the mountain. We had to stop briefly and make a few photographs, including this one.
