|Mount Robson Park|
I got up early on July 7 and packed up my campsite so I could do the tourist thing in Jasper. I stopped at a local bakery to eat breakfast and picked out my lunch before I left. Since many of the shops were not open yet I wander around town waiting for the camera shop to open. I only had one polarizing filter for three lenses. I brought a macro, 18-70mm Zoom (mid-range) and 70-300 mm Zoom Lenses with me on the trip. I mainly used the mid-range and 70-300mm Zoom. At each stop I needed to unscrew the polarizing filter and transfer it to the lens I had attached to the camera. I spend a lot of time at each stop transferring things around and decided to make life easier by buying a second polarizing filter.
I also needed to find a currency exchange since I did not run cross one in my travels. After I exchange American dollars for Canadian dollars it was late enough for some shops to open. I wanted to buy bear spray in an REI store in Montana but was not sure I could bring it over the border because it is made of mace and in Canada a can of mace is illegal. So I stopped at Everest Outdoor Store and picked out bear spray. While talking to the clerk I found out you can bring bear spray across the border if it is labeled as bear spray and you declare it when crossing the border.
