Post Glacier/Jasper/Banff trip pics

We had a great two week trip to Glacier/Jasper/Banff and wanted to share some scenic pics with the forums members. We stayed at Fish Creek CG on west side of Glacier, but got rained out. Then moved to Many Glacier CG on east side and had wonderful weather. Only saw one other AS the whole trip, and that was in Canada .

You can view them by clicking on my forum name and going to my "member's photos".

Enjoy!

Great pics J&C. Thanks for sharing. It just makes me want to get out of Texas a little sooner and into the high country.

Wish we were there!

Thanks for sharing your photos! We went on a cross country back in 2002 to visit almost the same areas you did. Not with an Airstream then (but the Airstream idea was hatched on that trip). We spent a month on the road in a Eurovan Weekender with 2 labradors. At the end of the trip we knew we needed more room.

Our photos from that trip, while not Airstream related, are at:
http://abragraphics.net/gallery/2002...002EVTrip.html

Disregard the top bar of the site. One of our several web sites. Just happened to post the trip photos there....need to move them to my personal site soon.

Thanks again for sharing. You've made us REALLY want to get out there again soon!!!!

The only thing you will be disappointed with is the lack of AS's in the parks.
All we saw were "Canadream" and "CruiseAmerica", big white box rentals in the parks......mostly Europeans seeing the sights in North America!

We just returned from a week camping in Osoyoos, BC with out '51 AS towed by our '57 Pontiac. Did not see another AS being towed nor in the campground of any vintage, saw a couple out in fields or beside barns/houses while travelling, and one what looked like a mid 70's being towed north at Oroville, WA and that was it. Got a LOT of thumbs up from truckers and SOB's, and at times when stopped for gas or food enroute had lot's of picture takers. Banff, Jasper and Glacier Park are two beautiful areas, as well as Lake Louise. They draw a huge number of tourists from Europe and Asia although it's mostly the Europeans who camp and tour in motorhomes. Germany and Britain were teh most common home countries for folks we met on this trip. They kept coming past our groups old trailers and hot rods and taking pictures with them standing in front of the cars and units.
For those heading to the Canadian west this year so far it's been much wetter and windier than in the past few years.

Many Glacier is, I think, one of the most beautiful spots in the world. Did you see any Grizzly? They are amazing to see, as long as they aren't in front of you on the trail.

Where did you camp in Osoyoos? We plan on driving the Crowsnest (Highway 3) from Hope to Osoyoos in a couple of weeks.

Great Trip...

We made similar trip in 2004.. (Our Avatar shows Condoluminum nestled into Lake Louise Campground..). All the rented mini-motorhomes are indeed Europeans, for whom a 2 to 4 week vacation is standard.. Too many Americans can't afford the 2 to 3 weeks of time off it takes to get there, explore and enjoy, and get home.. We were only Airstream in the parks as well during last 2 weeks in July, though a WBCCI Caravan had apparently rolled through earlier after leaving following the International Rally...

Take side trips off Glacier Parkway to waterfalls, and hiking trips, though you may want to leave trailer at Jasper or Lake Louise and tour with tow vehicle. It's also well worth trip out onto Glacier at midway point in between.. We paused to let black bears amble across highway just south of Jasper, and paused to socialize with mountain goats walking slowly along the road near Athabasca Glacier.. Definitely not the place to be in a big hurry..

If possible, you might also try to get down into Montana and east side of Glacier National Park, and visit Glacier Lodge in East Glacier... Again, very few Americans because it's so far "out of the way"... Compared to big crowds, full campgrounds and bustle of Yosemite or Yellowstone, it seems almost unfair..

Go to the website www.campingosoyoos.com and check out Nk'Mip campground. It's run by the First Nations who also have a winery on site. Well run, clean, easy access on the east side of Osoyoos. When you go onto the site, if you click on the actual site number it will come up with a picture of that spot. We've been in site 130 for a couple of years and last year, pre-AS, we were there with our '78 17 foot Boler. You will see when you click on the sight that they used it and the car, and our friends '35 Ford and his 17' Boler in their pictures. These lakefront sites do not have sewer, you need to go back a row which is also a bonus given you are then in the trees and it gets darned HOT in Osoyoos in the summer (high 90's, low 100's frequently).

Enjoy your trip. I'm jealous - I want to go back but work beckons. And the windmill (you'll see it in Osoyoos) has great ice cream, as does Tickleberries at Okanagan Falls, which is a pleasant drive through the orchards.
