Boomer travel - Canada - drive the Icefields Parkway for a scenic boomer road trip in the Northern Rockies of Canada. What a fun vacation in the Northern Rockies.
The Icefields Parkway is one grand Canadian road trip

Driving Canada’s Icefields Parkway provides one grand view after another. Alan and I dug into our photo archives for today’s Saturday’s scene. It reminds us of one of our favorite boomer road trips, even though we were on a bus. After driving on our own whirlwind Western National Park tour, Alan and I headed to Calgary from Glacier National Park. There, we joined a Tauck Tour so that someone else could do the driving and Alan could sit back and enjoy the view. From Lake Louise to Jasper Park Lodge to Banff, we luxuriated in the jewels of Canadian Rockies lodging. Plus, we experienced the touristy, but fun, ride up Athabasca Glacier on a Brewster Ice Explorer. Along the way, we took notes for a return trip. Next time, we hope to see the mountain goats at Goat Lick, take a boat ride to Spirit Island on Maligne Lake and dip our itchy travel feet in the soothing waters of Miette Hot Springs.
