itinerary advice Seattle-Saskatoon

Just wondering if my calculations on time are correct for being able to make this trip without really rushing...Here are my ideas...

Possible first day (monday)....drive to/overnight in Whistler (4-5 hours driving w/o stops)

Second day(Tuesday) Whistler-Revelstoke 6.5 hours driving without stops)

Other option of first day (if we leave one day later) Skip Whister....

Day 1(Tues) Anacortes-Revelstoke 7 hours driving (without stops)

overnight in Revelstoke to be fresh for......

Day 2 (Wed) Revelstoke-Banff (4 hours driving no stops) BUT want stops!!!

Golden/Lake Louise possible gondola ride???

overnight in Banff

Day 3 (Thurs) Take our time from Banff to Jasper, Icefields, lakes, falls etc

overnight in Jasper

Day 4 (Fri) Early morning drive Jasper-Edmonton (4 hours no stops)

afternoon shopping at "The Mall"

overnight in Edmonton

Day 5 (Sat) Maybe more shopping if not worn out then....

Edmonton-Saskatoon (no stops) 6 hours driving

Must arrive in Saskatoon on Sat evening.....

Any thoughts or advice? Mostly concerned about driving time being correct to get the best traveling/scenic routes in during daylight. This will be mid-September. Appreciate your time, counting down the days!

Hello jet72,

Your plans look feasible to me. I recommend that you include a visit to Moraine Lake (9 miles from Lake Louise). Hope you have a great trip.

Yup, that was one of the lakes on my list. Will probably do that on the way from Banff to Jasper....

Looks like you have a great itinerary...and have allowed yourself some decent tavel times. You will have time to stop at the sites that you will see signs for along the way without having to be concerned about timelines. have a great time!
