Tuesday 7/20 – Today was an uneventful day. We crossed the Alaska highway in Prince George and continued along the Yellowhead Highway heading east. We entered Alberta, Canada. The campground allowed you to wash your cars and RV for a $5 fee. They both were really dirty so it was worth the 5 bucks. 407 miles

Wednesday 7/21 – In Jasper, we picked up the Icefield Parkway and headed toward Calgary. This was a truly spectacular drive. I have posted many pictures. There are still many glaciers remaining. The mountains are extremely rugged as they were cut from previous glaciers. In Lake Louise, we picked up Highway 1 and drove through Banff National Park. Banff is the oldest national park in Canada. We originally planned to stay in Banff for 2 nights so we could visit the park. Dan had enough of sightseeing and just wanted to continue down the road. So we continued down Highway 1 right through Calgary during rush hour. We stopped for the night in Fort Macleod about 80 miles from the border. 387 miles
