Tuesday morning, we were back on Route 93. The road goes north through the Kootenay National Park, a delicious appetizer for Jasper and Banff. We went through forests and climbed passes as we got deeper into the western Canadian Rockies. Along the way, we found the Kootenay Park Lodge - a comfortable old place for lunch.

We continued out of Jasper National Park through the Athabasca Valley to Hinton where we stayed in preparation for tenting the next five nights.
