7 day itinerary

Going 7/12 - 7/19

Was thinking:

7/12 - 7/15: exploring banff, Calgary and stampede, lakes gondola etc etc

7/16 - 7/17: head to Jasper for 2 days 1 night to explore over there and head back to Canmore on the 17th

7/18 - 7/19: 2 more days in banff area have to head to airport around 330pm on the 19th

Thoughts? Can't go and NOT take time to spend at jasper and icefield etc right?)

Yes, that's right -- spending at least one night in Jasper is a good idea. You might be happier with two (leaving just one night for Banff on your way back), so that you would have some time to visit Maligne Lake, Miette, etc.

You do not need to book it far in advance.
