We are just back from Banff, Lake Louise and the Icefields Parkway. Amazing, mind-blowing mountains and glacial lakes. Go slow and stop at all the turn-outs. You won't be disappointed! There are no gas stations except at the mid-point, so make sure you fill up the car before you start. Also, there is a forest fire burning just south of the Columbia Glacier, and the road was only open 7am to 2 pm last week. Check with the Banff park ranger when you buy your park pass. Unfortunately, the view of the mountains is a bit hazy because of all the smoke. Still worth it! Enjoy, and bring your camera! Trip of a lifetime! July 20, 2014
