Banff Bound - Icefields Parkway, Jasper National Park, Alberta

I have been way behind going through my photos from my various trips over the past year or so. I hope to get through most of the backlog before I head back out on the road in September. My current focus is reviewing my photos from Banff and Jasper National Parks from last year. 

You can't mention Banff or Jasper without thinking about the Icefields Parkway that connects these two amazing parks.  This 140-mile road has so many things to experience, from pristine mountain lakes to the towering Canadian Rockies and the wildlife, that it is hard to see everything in just one visit. Don't take my word for it though. The parkway was named “One of the 10 Most Beautiful Drives in the World” by Conde Mast magazine and “One of the World’s Great Scenic Highways” by National Geographic.

This photo gives you an idea of what to expect when driving the parkway. My buddy Jeff Clow and I were headed back toward the town of Banff from somewhere north of the Columbia Icefields one late afternoon. I am not sure where exactly we were, as these scenes appear throughout this amazing road.
