North Washington state vs BC Canada
« on: July 27, 2010, 10:05:16 am »
Help please.  I can't believe I haven't made up my mind.  My tour starts very soon (next Monday) and most of the route is decided.  I have been on the North Cascades highway in Washington before and enjoyed the route very much, but I can"t help but wonder if a trip through Canada is calling my name.  My trip will start in Idaho and includes Glacier Waterton Park, the Selkirk Loop, the San Juans, Washington and Oregon Coast. I am not familiar with routes in south BC, but am curious if there is a decent, maybe spectacular stretch of road from say Nelson in the Selkirks to the San Juan islands.  Anyone have suggestions?  Thanks for any help.

Can you fit the Icefields Parkway in there somehow?  I can't think of a better bit of road....

Unfortunately I don't have that much time this go round.  I agree however about the Icefields Parkway, I have driven that road and I would like to include it in a future ride.  Maybe a Vancouver Island, Ferry ride, Prince Rupert, Jasper, Banf loop of some kind.
