I had 5 days in Canada last week working, so decided to try and see some of it. It didn’t go to plan. I landed in Calgary and drove to Canmore that evening to make my way to Edmonton through Banff and Jasper.

Didn’t have my DSLR but turned out to be a great week of driving etc

The day started with a great sunrise from the hotel room

Left Banff and the roads went worse – Lake Louise was a No No unfortunatley

Headed on the highway 93 to Jasper

And this happened - 90 mins with no phone signal and not a single car passed

Arrived in Edmonton some 7 hours later – after turning back and going back to Calgary and then up the highway

Edmonton was a bit on a suprise – looked like a mini New Yrok with heavy influence on industry and oil. Had a few good meals etc

And tried the same route back then we intended to do at the start of the week – they had just re-opened Highway 93 so had little hope – but it turned out superb

Way into Jasper

I lived in Calgary for just over a year; your pics bring back some fond memories of trips to all the places you went! Some cracking pictures, thanks for the share

Great pictures. Thanks for sharing. Haven't made it to Canada yet. I work in Oil and always wanted to see Banff (quiet a lot of activity there).

Great scenery, big skies and bigger mountains. Canada is on my todo list.
