Jasper and Banff

June 13 and 14, 2022

On Monday morning we woke up in Wabasso Campground in Jasper National Park. An elk walked right down the road in front of our campsite, perhaps looking for a place to birth her calf?

We headed south on Icefields Parkway through Jasper and stopped at Athabaska Falls.

We continued south into Banff National Park through the Columbia Icefields.

We stopped at the Columbia Icefields visitor center and drove on to Lake Louise. We stayed at the park campground, ruled by the magpies, who drove Lucee crazy trying to steal her food.

Tuesday was rainy, so we used the Park Coach Tour to visit Lake Louise and the Fairmont Lake Louise Hotel. A grand old place, but overrun with tourists brought in by coach!

We had dinner at Deer Lodge – it was excellent.

  1. We loved our meals at Deer Lodge. Chef is excellent there. Lovely vivid colours of the glacial water and I am pleased you saw mountain wildlife.
