Calgary to Jasper NP, Alberta, Canada - Even More Incredible Moose Sighting!

Yesterday we drove 281.1 miles...doesn't sound like much, but on windy roads it takes a very long time! We set out pretty early in order to have plenty of time to explore both Banff and Jasper National Parks. Within about a minute of entering Banff we spotted two moose right on the side of the road (see above photo...much more impressive than our previous moose sighting). We also spotted a fox running across the road - we never thought we'd get to check this off of our list of wildlife to see! We hiked out to a beautiful waterfall where we met a very friendly (and hungry) chipmunk (no, we didn't feed him). It was raining, and at one point we had hail, so our outdoor time was limited, but we spent plenty of time enjoying amazing views of the Canadian Rockies, glaciers, and lakes from the famed "Icefields Parkway."
