Jasper to Banff: The Icefields Parkway

Departing Jasper (see previous post) our upcoming ride of the famous Icefields Parkway was much anticipated. We'd driven this route back in 2009, very much as tourists and without doing much in the way of dedicated photography.

Brewer’s Buttress

After our time at Lake Louise, and a couple of days driving out to Drumheller, we spent a few days hanging out at Paul Rogers' place in Canmore (thanks Paul and Tana!) - nice to spend a few nights out of the van... The limestone cragging round Canmore is pretty…
