Day 29. Friday 16 September.
Getting some perspective here; our “little motorhome” (much bigger than anything we’ve ever had) is dwarfed by the next door neighbor in Jasper.
Highway 93…Promenade des Glaciers, 290kms of lots of lycra on 2 wheels and Asian tourists, but the mountains of sheer rock were the highlight. Is it the most beautiful road in the world? Every bend delivered gasping views. Glaciers, jade streams and lakes, waterfalls, more and more and more….. Past the Columbia icefields.
And suddenly we’re sharing the landscape with thousands of other “shoulder season” travellers at the iconic Lake Louise.
Another 65kms and we’re at the equally iconic Banff, where the campground officer tells us about wolf & grizzly drill. D chops the onions & garlic outside, but they come in promptly. Banff is bustling this weekend, with the Terry Fox run on Sunday. There are not many (make that none) starters from our group.
Some of the thousands of shots taken on this leg – but they don’t do the spectacular scenery justice.
