So the big once in a lifetime decision - Banff OR Jasper on Canada Day. Which one is going to give the greatest experience for three high spirited middle aged Aussies?
We are currently booked into the Banff Caribou Lodge, for 3 nights, checking out on the 1st. We were then going to make the dash to Edmonton but I realised it is Canada day and I don't want to miss the big day with driving, so do I extend for another night in Banff or hurry up and find something in Jasper?
I am thinking I have already spent a few days in Banff and have seen some of the area I may as well stop for another day as all it will involve is watching the parade and fireworks, and enjoying a few ales with the locals. And if I make the dash to Jasper I am not really going to see Jasper - am I? I may as well leave Banff the 2nd and complete the days drive to Edmonton then (with lunch in Jasper).
What do the great contributors to this forum think???
