I've got an updated itinerary - taking into consideration some suggestions that were offered earlier. Please let me know if this makes sense travel-wise and all.
There are a few questions intermingled I still have in the planning, please help out if you can. THANKS!
Day 1: Arrive Calgary
Day 2: Drive to Banff - bow lake/gondola. Stay at 2 Jack Lake
Day 3: Banff - L Minnewanka, Whyte Museum. Stay 2 Jack Lake
Day 4: Day trip to Kootenay - either stay there at hot springs or back in Banff? Is it too far to drive there & back in one day?
Day 5: Drive to LL along Bow Valley Parkway. Stay at LL tent site
Day 6: L Louise - either Agnes Tea house hike or 6 glaciers hike (which is better???) canoe on the lake. Stay LL tent.
Day 7: Yoho - tak falls, natural bridge, etc. stay @ tak falls tent
Day 8: Lake Ohara (is that possible? Am I too late?) Or hoodoos hike. Stay Tak falls tent.
Day 9: Ice fields parkway. Bow lake/Peyto Lake. Stay Num Ti Jah Lodge
Day 10: Columbia Ice fields in AM, Wilcox pass in PM. Stay at wilcox creek tent camping.
Day 11: to Jasper - athabasca falls/Mt Edith Cavall. Stay in a hotel in Jasper
Day 12: Maligne canyon/lake/cruise. Stay in same hotel.
Day 13: Day trip to Mt Robson park or stay in Mt Robson & camp? Is it worth a day trip if we don't hike all the way to Berg Lake? We could walk to Kinney Lake.
Day 14: Drive back to Calgary (should we drive back through Banff or through Edmonton?)
THANKS ALL CAN'T WAIT.
