Calgary To Jasper
Riding along the Icefields Parkway
It was nice to see Mike and Val and we pretty much
disrupted their life style for our two day visit. Mike cooked us
breakfast and we were on the road just past 10. Back past
Canmore, past Banff and then a stop at Lake Louise. The weather
wasn't great so we stopped in at the lodge and had lunch. After
lunch, clouds retreated a little, we went out to take some pictures:
Back on the road, this time a new road - the Icefields Parkway.
The clouds were crowding out the mountain tops, but the views were still
Another stop on my childhood memories. When I was a kid we took
the buggy ride on top and I remember the creeks on top. We were
coming up on sunset at the prospect of paying $30 to walk around on a
glacier for less than half an hour. We walked on the bottom and
looked at all the tracks leading out of bounds.
As we headed north, the clouds broke up giving us views of the mountain
Athabasca falls is another place I remember visiting as a kid.
The sun was starting to fall behind the mountains when we arrived so
there was limited direct sun light.
Just outside of Jasper (as just before sunset) we found a small herd of
Elk grazing at the side of the road.
