Double Rainbow Over Jasper Rail Station, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

Double Rainbow Over Jasper Rail Station, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

We encountered rain during the last stretch of our Icefields Parkway drive and it became a hard rain shortly after checking into our room which was located right in the middle of Jasper. It didn’t last long however and became this stunning double rainbow. I captured this photo from our 2nd floor room which overlooked the main street through town and the Jasper Rail Station. After burning through a bunch of frames, I ran downstairs to across the street to catch this locomotive and conductor passing through town right before the rainbow completely disappeared.

My family and I ended up liking Jasper (the town) more than Banff because it was a smaller town with less tourists to contend with. Jasper had good restaurants (Downstream is a must! Try the poivree poutine.) and was very walkable. The local artist guild even had a jam session where anyone with an instrument could just come in and play. As if the scenery wasn’t enough, Jasper is a really cute place!
