Very icy, slippery road to get here but the views were worth it.

There's a place I've been close to, but never been... one of these days, if global warming doesn't get them first.

Never a bad time driving the Icefields Parkway. Even when the clouds are down to the ground, there is always something to shoot. Marvelous job here.

The best time for most visits is any time but winter unless you are adventurous and determined. And don't mind that everything is closed. Better start out with a full tank of fuel...
Traveling there now requires chains or at least snow tires but even so is not recommended. Keeping the road clear at this time of year is challenging for those folks. I had to stop and wait 1 hr while they did some preventive avalanche shooting. No photos of that unfortunately.

Thanks for the all the comments!

Nice 'drive-by shooting'. (Hope the NSA computers don't trigger by saying that )
