I am kinda on my way back to Dallas from Banff/Jasper,I am in Provo UT tonight.
The route I took from Dallas was, day 1 to Pagosa Springs via Santa Fe and Abiquiu , Day 2 550 through Ouray and Silverton then 141 (surprisingly awesome ) ending up in Craig CO, day 3 to Red Lodge MT via Beartooth pass,
Day 4 back over beartooth thru Yellowstone to Kalispel, MT, Day 5 to Banff with enough time to do the Icefield Parkway( impressive , don't miss this area),
Day 6 Icefield parkway again then to Missoula MT, DAy 7 hwy 93 to Provo UT.
Been a but over 4,000 miles so far and it has been some great scenery and riding.I was going to ride the road to the Sun in Glacier park but a landslide has part of it closed.
Enjoy your ride there is a lot of great roads between you and Banff.
