Planning my usual trip to Banff in the beginning of October, where I'll join up with friends for Thanksgiving.
I've lost track of how many times I've made the trip from Sacramento to either British Columbia or Alberta. I know I've travelled Hwy 1, I-5, 97, and 395. I really like the central Oregon and Washington routes, but was thinking this time I might head east first and then north on 95 through Winnemucca, a bit of Oregon and then Idaho. I'd like to cross the border near Creston BC, because the birding in that area is beyond awesome and likely stop a couple days in Creston.
I haven't put in much time in Nevada in ages--some of the trip reports on WTW are pretty attractive and I know I really like high desert. Any comments or suggestions re this part of the world and route would be most welcome. I'll be camping.
