Jasper Maps and Orientation
(Jasper, Alberta - AB, Canada)
The Jasper townsite has much more of an intimate vibe than nearby Banff
and almost feels a little like an original frontier town. Located on the western side of Canada's province of Alberta, Jasper marks the commercial heart of the much-visited Jasper National Park and lies within the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
Jasper is actually to be found in the very scenic Athabasca River Valley and next to the Miette River. Prominent nearby mountains include both the Maligne Range and the Pyramid Mountain. Also close by is the Patricia Lake, the Pyramid Lake and Lake Annette.

is a little further away, being some 225 miles / 360 km to the east.
