The Baniff - Jasper Highway

The trans Canada highway passes through Baniff National Park and continues west just north of Lake Louise, into British Columbia.

At Lake Louise, you can also take the Baniff - Jasper highway to Jasper. This is an impressive highway that is an adventure like none other I have experienced.

Sometimes you are down in a valley area, then other times you are above the tree line. The trip at one point is a fast change of elevation. We were going north so it was a climb. Part way up the climb it is a switch back. When we were part way up, there was a pull off and I looked back along the road.
