    are you driving?

Yes. It's ~10.5 hours to Jasper from here, then another couple down to Banff from there.

    flying?

No, though I suppose you could fly into Calgary and drive from there.

    what's around there?

Jasper National Park, Banff National Park, Yoho National Park, Kootenay National Park. Lake Louise, the town of Banff, uhm maybe other things that I'm 100% unaware of (likely lots of this).

    how do i vacation there?

Option 1: Go daycamping or backpacking through yonder woods.

Option 2: Find a hostel, room, or couch in the Lake Louise area and go exploring!

I'll likely have more valuable input at the end of this month.

i guess you're camping just based on what you usually do but i'd be very curious about the hostel situation up there. i get cheapish flights to calgary sometimes.

lemme know

Apparently there's a bunch of hostels scattered about the area. Who knew.

Truly a mystery.
