The Icefields Parkway

July 08, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

The Icefields Parkway is the main highway between Lake Louise and Jasper, Alberta, Canada and it has to be one of the most scenic drives in North America. The parkway is entirely surrounded by Banff National Park and Jasper National Park. So, if you are driving on the parkway, you are driving in one of the two parks. There are a large number beautiful lakes, waterfalls, trails, creeks, rivers, canyons along this road and that are easily accessible within a short walk of a turnout. I'll be writing about many of these stops and showing some of the photos I took along the way.

 

We were too busy going from scenic view to scenic view to spend a lot of time taking pictures of what it looks like as you are driving on the road, but here is a sampling.
