A Little Road Trip – The Canadian Rockies Jasper to Banff AB Canada via the Icefields Parkway

We are very fortunate to live close to some of the most beautiful mountains in the world.

Since we have been working so much lately we decided to take a little break during a short lull in business and drive the Jasper to Banff Icefields Parkway with stops and stays along the way. We were gone from Friday until late yesterday.

We spent time at Athabasca Falls, around Nordegg, and in many places along the way. We hiked the Valley of The Five Lakes short loop while we were in Jasper.


The short loop starts at P15 then we took 9a to the right and cut back via 9b. The hike was beautiful with the kids and us really enjoying themselves.

Here are some shots taken via my HTC HD7 while on the road and in no particular order:






There is absolutely no cell coverage anywhere in there except Jasper and Banff. So it was nice to be disconnected for a while. ;)

We are now gearing up for a number of standalone and clustered virtualization deployment projects that will be keeping us quite busy!

Thanks for reading. :)
