Road to the Glacier - Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

Columbia Icefields, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

I have shared the majesty of the Icefields Parkway many times on the blog and it seems that I can't stop doing it. Every time I look at the ruggedness of the Canadian Rockies along this famous road, I get the urge to hop in a plane and head there. This particular stretch of the 140-mile road is just north of the Banff - Jasper boundary and the Columbia Icefields. A well known saying is that "A picture is worth a thousand words." I prefer this one, "A picture of the Icefields Parkway is worth a thousand different feelings." I don't know if anyone has ever said that before. If not, I own it.
