We are considering a trip in August to the Canadian Rockies. Given that it is peak season, I am wondering if we would be better off spending time in the Kootenays on the BC side, rather than fighting the crowds at Jasper.
We love to hike, but probably won't camp or backpack. If we take day hikes, do we stand a chance of escaping the crowds in Jasper?
The Kootenays look lovely but I can see they don't have the majesty of Jasper - still, might be worth it if there is a little more quiet to enjoy the nature. Thanks in advance for your advice!
