Going through Customs was a breeze, then on into Canada. I chose a route through the Kananaskis area, rather than going through Calgary or its suburbs. Rural and mountain driving is much more pleasant than city driving, even if it takes a little longer. The morning was beautiful. I saw 3 mule deer and 16 bighorn sheep. The skies clouded up during the early afternoon.
Right now I'm in the public library in Banff. (None of the public campgrounds in the national parks have WiFi.) I camped at Two Jack Lakeside for the first night in Banff. I may not be able to post again for a day or two. Tomorrow I'll be in a more primitive campground along the Icefields Parkway. I hope to find a spot at Wilcox Creek Campground since I want to hike part of the Wilcox Pass Trail. All is well and I'm about the leave the library in search of sights and wildlife.
When I get to Jasper (Alberta), I'll try to post some good pics.
(Actually I didn't get to post and upload pictures for a few more days.)
