    No, it is north of Banff and south of Jasper NP.

    It's right on the road to Jasper from Banff. You can't miss it.

        Good if you're driving on glaciers. They go pretty slow. Might take a long time to reach your destination if traveling on an Interstate.:wink!:

          Nothing a little change in gearing won't fix... :whistle:

            We took the Indian tour bus which is closed and air conditioned (instead of the red bus which has an open top) and gained much from the commentary of the driver.
            I would NOT drive the GTTS road especially after driving to get to the park. It's an exercise in concentration for the driver and who needs that on vacation.
            It would be an all-day event to drive from one end to the other and back again and that's without stopping to do anything.
            One day take the tour and the second day take a shuttle to Logan's Pass and take a hike. We made it to Hidden Lake with something like 600 wooden steps; not bad for a couple of 70 year-olds.
            BTW, Glacier N.P. will be beautiful even without glaciers. I believe it was named because glaciers formed it rather than the number of glaciers in the mountains.

I noticed the same thing at Grand Teton NP and Rocky Mountain NP when we visited them in Sept, 2005. It is too bad. I have not gotten to Glacier NP yet. I will have to make an effort to get there before the glaciers are gone.

                I think I will still be around in 10 years. That is when a U.S. Geological Survey guy who works at Glacier NP thinks they will be gone...

                Now the ones in Jasper NP in Canada looks to be around a lot longer....
