I'm headed for the Canadian Rockies July 13 for adventure and golf. I've camped in Banff, Jasper, etc., but it's been a few years, so I'm looking forward to it.

I went horseback riding in Alberta a few years ago. Combined the trip with hiking in Banff. Some people say that this is the most beauitful part of N America and say they might be right.

Canada doesn't necessarily have a reputation for being fashion-forward, but anyone tapped into the Montreal or Toronto scenes knows Canadians have perfected a look that's simultaneously edgy, comfortable and chic. Google search "Toronto hipster" if you don't believe me. There are great opportunities here for aspiring stylists, such as Aveda Institute Canada's 'Win Your Tuition'hair school scholarship video contest. Submit a two-minute video explaining why you were born to style and win tuition to either the Calgary, Toronto, Winnipeg, Victoria or Vancouver hair schools (that's Aveda education on one of the coldest cities on the planet)! 

Canada's fashionable.

@Thom.C.J.Young, thanks so much! I especially appreciate the tip about it being the Stampede's 100th anniversary--that oughta be good! There'll be fireworks for sure. I just can't wait to be driving through the mountains...

Will be in Calgary for 2 weeks and in between travel to Vancouver. Any suggestions of what to see.

From Vancouver, there's a whole days drive before you get there. Some spots to see in look, Lake Louise, Banff, Calgary, Edmonton and back down the ice fields parkway. Not much time to spend at any place. If you can arrive the first week in July catch some fun in Calgary at the greatest show on earth, the Calgary Stampede, 2012 is the 100th anniversary and lots of big acts are slated and there's of course the rodeo, chuckwagon races and grandstand show every day. Lots to do around Calgary then off to Edmonton, stay in the Fantasy Hotel at the West Edmonton mall, you can spend a week there by itself. Number one highway to Calgary, 2 to Edmonton, 16 to Jasper, 93 back to the number one to find your way back to lotus land. With only a week this is about as much as you can plan on covering and even that is a stretch as many of the places along the way would take a week to explore by themselves.

Enjoy Alberta!

I have a question: If you had just over a week to tour the province of Alberta, starting and ending in Vancouver, what would you do/see? I haven't been to Alberta since I was twelve! I'm twenty six now; I can only imagine there's been continuous improvement since the last time I was there!
