Icefields Parkway Drive-Jasper to Lake Louise

29 June 2014

Our drive from Valemount to Canmore took us on Hwy 5 to 16 to 93 in Jasper which is the Icefields Parkway considered to be one of the 10 most scenic drives in the world. I would probably rate it #1 or #2. The parkway travels through the Jasper and Banff National Parks in the Canadian Rockies for a total of 142 miles. In Lake Louise you then pick up TC 1 to Canmore.

Our weather today was not good for great photos due to clouds and intermittent rain. We plan to return later on a sunny day.
No wild animal sightings today, but some awesome scenery. The Parkway affords magnificent views of glaciers,lakes,waterfalls,hiking trails and a new addition is the "Glacier Skywalk" which can be booked at the Glacier Discovery Center. www.glacierskywalk.ca. We plan to do this on our return. Please allow at least 3 hours or more to do this drive and take advantage of stops along the way, many of which we did previously. www.icefieldsparkway.com

I cannot begin to name all the glaciers, mountains and lakes in the photos. Included some of the better ones.
