I am blocking out 2 weeks this summer for a much needed road trip. I would love to do a loop from Portland to Glacier NP, up to Jasper, AB, over to Vancouver, then back to Portland. I think its probably too much to do and explore in such little time, but it encompasses alot of what I have wanted to see for a long time.
First, is this possible? I was thinking of spending 2-3 nights/days in each Glacier, Banff/Lake Louis/Jasper, Vancouver, and hoping to have time to explore on the drive from Vancouver to Portland (going to either Cascades or Olympic along the way). I think its probably just too much.
My next question is if I was to choose an area, I'm guessing I'd either do a loop from Portland to Vancouver and back, or somehow doing the Glacier/Waterton to Jasper trip (with the possibility of Vancouver in there).
What are people's thoughts on these ideas? I love the idea of doing the whole thing, but theres probably too much to see/explore and the areas probably deserve separate trips.
Any and all thoughts and ideas are welcomed. Thanks for the help.
