Second night, Cadomin Alberta. Took the forestry trunk road north from Brazeau. About 160 k of gravel road. Pretty drive but super dusty and tiring. Soaked my feet in a glacier fed stream. That was refreshing

Cadomin to Maligne lake, then Jasper for the night. Another 50 k of washboard gravel. Pretty sure I lost a filling until we hit pavement. Roughly 250 k total

Down the parkway. Incredible scenic, so much that I hardly took any pictures at all.

Favorite picture, glacier centre. We passed on the skywalk tour due to Covid

More scenery



Last nights Bush  camp on crown land. Every campground was completely full in Nordegg, we ended up going around 30 k south on gravel to the north Saskatchewan river. Found a spot on the riverbank

On the way home roughly 1250 kms later, one broken shackle and a cooked fan relay later.
Kids had a blast, mine fell asleep a couple times while driving.
Were planning on making this an annual trip ( to different locations)


I have some videos I took with a garmen dash cam Ill post up once I figure out how to download

Thanks for taking us along.  Love the pictures.  Lots of water going over Athabasca Falls.

David,
What an excellent trip!  I don't use Imgur so I had to poke around a bit until I found something. 

I can see you know about the button (first button second row) that allows you to post an image.  It simply adds to your post the "img][/img" (outer brackets removed so this would show in text) commands so that all you have to do is post the address between the inner brackets.  This is visible, to me as I type, in my making your post a "quote" above.  But once I post or "Preview" it only shows what you see and everyone else sees in your posts: No picture.

At first, I couldn't get your Imgur link to work as the shortcut or address for the "img" command.  I also noticed that the extension ".jpg" was missing (this has always shown up for me when I posted links for images).  Simply adding that extension to the shortcut didn't work:



What I did next was to notice at the bottom of each image a set of icons: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Reddit and some dots (I presume if you do those platforms these buttons make it easy to post) and the dots giving you options for downloading or embedding.  None of those helped me post here.

What I did was right click right on the image selected "Copy image link":  https://i.imgur.com/oWv7HIG.jpg    (notice the .jpg on the end).  And I inserted between the "img" brackets and got this:



So for me, it seems all you have to do is go to each post and paste the "image link" where you have the "img" commands and these trip memories will show!

HTH

Just now watched these!  Very nice!  Your GPS was showing 50-60 mph on the open road.  That's clipping along! Any maintenance along the way?

NVM,  I found this post that I didn't see before.  Not bad at all - especially if everyone was grinning!
