This is inspiring -- we were in Banff and Radium in the summer with the crowds -- beautiful but sometimes we were tripping over people. It's a reminder of why we need to retire and be able to camp in the "off" seasons.

? I'm curious about when you took this trip? The reason I ask is I'm trying to figure out how late in the Fall we can attempt a similar trip without risking roads with snow/ice. (I'm planning/hoping to retire next year)

Those pictures are truly awesome!

So glad folks like the photos , some are just iPad - thanks love to share ( and view others) .
On this trip we left Sept .17 but did not go to Jasper till Sept . 20. Jasper was a little cooler than the last time - appr. the same time of year . We have taken that hot spring circle route as late as after Thanksgiving in years past . Highway 1 is generally good we just watch for weather reports - especially for south of Revy and the Coquahalla ... have gone to the island in late Sept . - weather is less of an issue than in early spring ( aside from Van. rain) . Love fall travel .

Were the squirrels still wanting to get into your pockets at the tea house?

I sent my husband the link to this thread and said "this is one of the reasons I want to get a trailer". He agreed. He's been to some of these places. He wants to go back. I agreed.

Nice pictures G&W,
Whom ever took those has some artistic or photography talent. Nature is more amazing when viewed through these pictures. You guys are busy, between this and the rally it is good to see....
stay warm.
