I am preparing a trip in West North America.
I would start in Vancouver, take the ferry in Port Hardy till Bella Coola, then go till William lake. Is that route gravel or asphalt ?
Then I would like to go From Jasper till Canmore. First from William Lake I get 2 ways. Or I go straight by the road 5, or I make a big tour, Mackenzie, Grande Prairie and Hinton. Is the scenery beautiful along that big tour, or is it hills and fields ?
From Jasper till Canmore I get 2 roads, the 93 and the 73. The 73 seems gravel road. Is one really more beautiful than the other ? Is it intersting to cycle both ? Does a bus make the junction, Jasper till Canmore, for the way back, if I do both ?
I see on the map a lot of rest areas along the roads. Does someone already use them to camp for a night ? I did that a lot in East Canada.
And I think to do the trip in June and July, would I meet a lot of flies mosquitoes and tic bugs in June ? And would it be crowdy in July in Banff ?
