We took a road trip to Salmon Glacier outside of Hyder. This is a 20 mile gravel road to one of the largest glaciers we saw on the entire trip. Salmon glacier is very large and very beautiful. This trip was definitely the highlight of our stay in Stewart/Hyder.
After leaving this area we drove to the Icefield Hwy. This was again a disappointment - not because of the weather because the last time we were there it was very cloudy and cold - but because there were so many people in the park. We had trouble with our transmission heating up so I drove separate through most of the park. i stopped at a few viewing areas and took some pictures of the mountains. After we parked in the overflow lot south of Lake Louise, I went back into Lake Louise to the beautiful hotel and lake. This was very crowded but it is so beautiful that I didn't mind the crowds.
