The Icefields Parkway - Banff to Jasper

We left Banff for Jasper on Tuesday the 24th at about 10:30am. We stopped to see the magnificent green hued Lake Louise but we arrived and found most of the lake frozen. It was nice nonetheless. We enjoyed a scenic drive along the highway called the Icefields Parkway. Wed stopped many times to snap some pics and take in the views. We saw two black bears and several elk along the way. The glaciers were impressive especially the Columbia Icefields. We are in the town of Jasper now doing laundry and checking out the shops. It's Alex's birthday - he's 11 today- so we are eating out tonight. He got a dream catcher, a Canadian Rockies wildlife book and a totem pole and the rest of the presents are coming when we hit the West Edmonton Mall.
I have tried to scout out the fishing possibilities here but have not decided where to go yet. The best fishing lake, Maligne Lake, is still ice!


  1. Awesome adventure!
