Parks Day tribute: 1965 Jasper Banff Highway postcard

Jasper-Banff postcard from 1965

Today is Parks Day, so I thought I’d share a postcard from the Jasper Banff Highway from 1965. My great aunt really looked forward to her roadtrips with a few girlfriends, and in 1965 they took “the west” by storm. Like most tourists, they were on a quest to see some wildlife, but no luck seeing any bears at this point! I wonder how often a photo can be taken today with only one car on the road in these popular national parks?
