Canada has the best National Parks - it's just a fact. Nothing compares to the Canadian Rockies. Ryan and I went to Banff over a weekend in college and had the best time - some of our favorites memories, so we decided to go back. Honestly, it was almost just as good as the first time. It's just a cool place, so much to see, so relaxed and clean. We car camped in parking lots every night, ate gniocci for dinner. We drove probably 30 hours (Ryan drove the whole time ;) over the course of the 3 days, but it was so worth it. We started at Yoho National Park, made our way to Banff - which was beyond crowded, then took the Icefields Parkway up to Jasper. There is nothing like camping trips together. I love not showering for days, except for washing off our bodies in the information office bathroom sinks. I love cooking our dinners on the trunk of our car, and eating next to a lake. I love that we always find a nice restaurant between our canned food meals, and a place to go shopping. That's my ideal roadtrip.
