Driving along Canada hwy 1 towards the icefield parkway you come across waterfalls coming down the mountains which are worth a stop and have a look and take a few pics. The roads are very good considering how close you are to the mountains. You have to be on alert for the parkway because their aren't many signs to prepare you for the turn off from hwy and expect a line of cars to enter the parkway. It is a very beautiful drive with plenty of stops along the way to look at the wildlife(watch for bears and pumas!) and glaciers. Drive along the river to the falls the water is a milky off white color and very cold(not for swimming). From beginning to end it was very enjoyable even though it rained.
