We are flying out west for my mom's dream trip and none of us have been there before. I'm hoping if I give my timeframe and the places were hoping to cover, maybe someone can give me some idea whether I can fit all of this in. Besides seeing the incredible scenery we're hoping to do some nice hikes that aren't toooo strenuous for a 75 year old. Here goes:
Sept 26 driving from Edmonton to Jasper. Leaving in the morning so want to stop at Miette Hot Springs and wondered if there's anything else we're 'going by' on our way to Jasper? We have one night booked at the Jasper Park Lodge and then have 2 nights booked at Patricia Lake Bungalows. While in Jasper we're wanting to see Maligne Lake, Mt Edith Cavell (do I find the Angell Glacier/Cavell Meadows hike here?), Athasbasca Falls, Kerkeslin Goat Lick and Jasper Tram..
Sept 29,30 & Oct 1 we have booked at Douglas Fir REsort. Driving from Jasper and are wanting to see the following via our drive and over the next 2 days - Sunwapta Falls, Stutfield Glacier, Columbia Icefield (snocoach if time) peyto lake, Lake Louise (possible to have time to hike the Valley of the 10 peaks?) Moriane Lake, Emerald Lake, Banff Gondola, Johnston Canyon, Yoho Nat Park (Tak Falls and Kicking Horse Pass) . I've also read about Parker Ridge and Plain of 6 Glaciers/Lake Agnes. Have no idea where this might be.
On Oct 2nd we're off to Calgary and need to be there around 11 a.m.
If anyone can give me an idea of what my itinerary should look like and out of this list what I should 'pass' on or what I don't have marked that is a 'must see'. Thanks in advance!
