Wee Jasper

We're rolling into Wee Jasper I like visiting here because of the lovely countryside and it has such an evocative name, but there's not much here, a closed General Store, a school and a church just about does it.


  1. Been a while since I have been to Wee Jasper. Looks like the bridge is newly painted. Lovely perspective.

  2. I've heard this place mentioned before from friends who do adventure sports, but I haven't been there myself yet.

    1. I think there might be caving in the area. There was a push bike rider I took a snapshot of when I was there. Not sure what other adventure sports are in the area. Not my kind of thing.

  3. Great pic.

    Love the place name. I'm guessing it was named by a Scotsman.

    1. I was so intrigued, I looked it up and found this:

      "The most romantic origin of the name Wee Jasper comes from folklore and is attributed to an early resident, McBean, an old Scot, one of the early settlers . McBean, so the story goes, arrived home one day with 'Wee' (Scottish for small), 'Jasper' (Gems) in his pocket, found in some obscure stream in the hills." - Australian Explorer

    2. Oh well done. I was wondering about the name.

  4. A n impressive entry for Wee Jasper.

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
