Banff/Jasper trip 3: Icefields Parkway

Icefields Parkway

Icefields Parkway

They had Ice Explorer vehicles so that you could traverse the fields of ice. We have seen too many survival shows and movies to know that getting on one could not possibly end well.

And then in the midst of snow and ice you get views like this one.

And then we saw sheep! We kept calling them goats but the park authorities are so appreciative when you properly identify them as sheep.

‘Twas the first of many, many wild animal sightings on this trip. Many.
