Jasper Alberta Canada.  The Icefields Parkway is a 160 mile road through the most amazing scenery.  Even better are the wild animals along the side of the road.  Bears, elk, caribou, mountain goats, moose, big horn sheep, fox, it felt like someone left the gates to the zoo open.  Early June is the best time to go, the animals come down to the edge of the road to get the salt.
