"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Banff to Jasper

The drive from Banff to Jasper, though being only about 130 miles, took us over six hours.  The road goes through some amazing landscapes; passing glaciers, rivers, mountains, waterfalls, lakes, and more.  Here are just a few shots along the way.  All taken with the point and shoot from the roadside pullouts.
