66 year old Australian couple planning a 3 to 4 week trip to BC in the summer of 2013. Thinking of a self-drive loop from Vancouver through the Okanangan Valley, Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper and back to Vancouver.
The Rocky Mountaineer gets lots of publicity here in Oz but we are not keen on organised tours, prefering to drive and take our time.
So, does anyone have a view on road versus rail scenic spectacularity? - apart from the need for one of us to keep our eyes on the road, of course.
