This was my last day in Jasper National Park (until I returned for my train ride back), so I started off early heading south towards Lake Louise. Along the way I would enjoy some fantastic driving on the Icefields Parkway, pass by the well-known Columbia Icefield Center, hike the Wilcox Pass trail and settle at the Fairmont in Lake Louise.
A long but productive day.
To Lake Louise
Lake Louise - an iconic place that I'm sure many have seen in photos, if not outright visited. It seemed busier here than even Jasper, although that may be just the influx of tour busses here.
I stayed at the Fairmont for two nights, having found discounts on rooms here (I think it was still more expensive than a normal hotel room though). I think it was worth it for at least a few nights, given its location (it's right on Lake Louise and also fairly central among the three national parks). They also had "fancy" food and drinks.
