When traveling from Banff to Jasper you get the opportunity to drive on the Ice Fields Parkway. This drive is one of the most scenic drives in the world with tons of glaciers, icefields, wildlife, lakes, waterfalls, and rivers. We drove slowly and enjoyed the views stopping every couple minutes to take pictures. This is what we saw.
Baby Grizzly bear.
Skywalk over the glaciers.
The Columbian Icefield is the largest ice field in the Rockies and it is breathtaking.
We parked the Chinook in front of icefields, made some coffee and enjoyed the view.
We camped at two different campgrounds. Snaring campground was nestled in the trees besides the river and was more intimate. Whistler camprgound was giant with over 780 campsites, we usually try and shy away from campgrounds this large but we heard that a herd of elk and their newborn calves live in the campground so we stayed there a night and got the chance to see the elk wandering around the campground.
Ever tried a banana s'more? YUMM
Can you find the 3 big horn sheep?
On the way back to Banff we stopped again at Peyto Lake, but this time it was snowing. We love this lake.
