Scenic Drive to the Columbia Icefields

We had rented a car and drove from Calgary to Banff and then continued along the Icefield Parkway. This is a uber scenic drive named after the chain of glaciers and 'icefields' topping the Rockies. At every turn we were awed by spectacular vistas of snow capped peaks and glaciers creeping down! Here are a few pics taken along the drive.
