Mt. Athabasca Canada

The drive from Lake Louise to Jasper on Canada’s Icefields Parkway (93) is about 145 miles (230 km) and is about a 3 hour drive if you don’t stop along the way. Of course that is virtually impossible for anyone with a camera. This shot is typical of the scenery for almost the entire drive. In my opinion, this is the most spectacular drive in North America. I’ve driven the road many times. There are dozens of stops you’ll want to make along the way. A quick online search will reveal numerous charts/lists of the many attractions accessed along the beautiful highway, most of which are immediately off the highway.
