Part Four of my travelogue of our week-long-best-ever summer road trip in the Canadian Rockies, where the term “it’s a pleasure to drive” takes a whole new meaning. We visited some of the best known sights of Banff, Yoho and Jasper National Parks, including the beautiful Lake Louise and Emerald Lake, as well as the Athabasca Glacier of the Columbia Icefield en route to Jasper.

Jasper Town

After our drive to Jasper via the Icefields Parkway, I think I truly understood the meaning of “it’s the journey that matters, and not the destination.” In fact, we had enjoyed the journey so much that we were somewhat disappointed by the town itself. I’m not sure what we were expecting but perhaps this was because we were seeing the town after dark and our expectations of a mountain town had become unreasonable after staying in the picturesque town of Field.

‘Twas the night before our epic trip to the Northeastern – 7 Sister States – of India. I was in Thane (Maharashtra) out on a stroll around midnight when I came across this group practicing making a human pyramid to celebrate Dahi Handi – a festival for celebrating Lord Krishna’s birthday.

In the video the group is seen successfully making 5 tiers, although 8 or 9 tiers is not uncommon these days!

Driving in the Canadian Rockies

Picture Perfect: Field, British Columbia (BC)

From Lake Louise, the Trans-Canada Highway continues west towards Vancouver, and the road going north-west leads to the Icefields Parkway, which goes to Jasper via the famous Columbia Icefield. Field is the first town you come across on the Trans-Canada Highway after crossing into British Columbia (BC). It is by far the most beautiful and picturesque town I’ve ever seen in Canada!
