Although we were met with incredibly bad weather, the Canadian Rockies surpassed my expectations ten fold. We visited Banff for the first 3 nights, Jasper for the next 2 and ended our adventure in Kananaskis County for two nights. Our drive down the Icefields parkway from Banff to Japser was one of low visibility - heartbroken, I knew that we could try again on our 5 hour drive to Kananskis in 2 days. Well, the Parkway was closed down a day later for the next three days due to more avalanches then they had seen in a while.
Thanks to the ice climbers in Jasper who gave us a heads up - we found another way Kananaskis - it took us nine hours and we went through just about every weather you could think of - but it was an adventure & that's more then I could ask for.
