Driving the Icefields Parkway: Part 1

From Big Sur to the Columbia River Gorge, I've enjoyed some pretty scenic drives in the last few years. The Icefields Parkway, stretching between Banff National Park and Jasper National Park, was without doubt another epic addition to that list. Stunning views of Alberta's Rocky Mountains, distant glaciers, and even a few bears sightings made for a memorable day.

Other stop offs along the Icefields Parkway included Athabasca Falls, Columbia Icefield, Sunwapta Falls, and the brand new Glacier Skywalk. It's a popular drive, but there are lots of places along the road to pull over, enjoy the views, and find a piece of the scenery for yourself.
