Superb picture... Thanks for sharing. It's rather enticing.If you are planning on doing the Banff route - which I would HIGHLY recommend - doing that on the way down - make sure you at least visit Moraine Lake - just south of Lake Louise - one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. the Jasper to Banff trip is amazing - but then so is the Washington to Anchorage ferry ride. the road in Canada is LONG......longer than it looks and feels in the planning stage. coming back from Banff a nice route is through Glacier Park and "going to the Sun" road - exceptional scenery. Mt. Rainer in WA is a nice diversion if you are spending some time in the WA area. Depending on what time of year you are in the area - Ferry rides (motorcycles always go to the front of the wait line) to the WA peninsula and Hurricane Ridge is a beautiful ride. you can catch a ferry out of Port Angeles to the Islands and head north from there to the ferry to AK. What to pack - less than you think we have pretty good civilization out here most places...you can always buy what you need and will likely toss what you don't. Air pump - plugging system (they are a real bitch to actually use so practice)...cell phone, nav...remember Canada is not comfortable with ANY sort of firearms - I shipped my sidearm to Anchorage and then back to Seattle when we made our "arctic circle" trip. Yellowstone through Beartooth Pass is AMAZING...but Yellowstone itself has become somewhat of a pain in the butt with tour busses ALL over the place. Jackson through the John D Rockefeller road parallels the Grand Tetons - beautiful...WATCH FOR WILDLIFE (and in Yellowstone stupid drivers that will stop in the middle of the road to photograph a bison)...that's about all I have for the "Western" part of the trip...feel free to make contact if you would like to chat about anything in the Pacific Northwest area. If you are REALLY adventurous there is a site called https://ridebdr.com/WABDR the Washington Back Roads -it has GPS files for an almost 100% offroad track from Oregon to Canada through the Cascades....great riding and has skill levels for almost all riders. Best of luck - and hopefully you won't need any.
