    Default Glacier/Banff/Jasper National Parks

    I'm really stoked. I just got off the phone with my dad and we decided where we are gonna go on our summer roadtrip this June. As of right now, we are going to Glacier National Park in Montana, then heading over to Priest Lake, Idaho to fish. I'm trying to figure out how to work Banff and Jasper into the equation before I plan how many days I need to get off.
    I want to find out how many days I need in each park to do some hikes, drive the scenic loops, and cast a couple of lines.
    Taking driving out of the loop, here is what I have:
    Glacier 1 full day + split day with Waterton Lakes
    Banff and Jasper 2-1/2 days.
    I'm workin on my gameplan and I'll post it on here for review when I'm done.

    Thanks,
    Brett

    If you can find a way to break out three days in Glacier -- there is mucho to do. Here are a couple of field reports from Glacier, Bison Preserve and Craters of the Moon. And a must-read guide book to Banff

    Default Thanks

    I just ordered that book from Amazon. I think I figured out how I'm gonna do this trip. Just gotta run it by my dad over the holiday to make sure he can handle it.
    Thanks again for the help Mark.

    Thanks for the order -- Another book that I used extensively while on the Montana trip (it is how I found about the Bison Preserve and a few other places) is The Ultimate Montana Atlas and Travel Encyclopedia And you really should look at this thread for my best picks from that trip!
