Canada 150 – From Coast to Coast to Coast

This is it.  The full trip. 17,496 kms. 12 National Parks.  I do plan on getting to Vancouver Island at some point so that I can officially complete “from Bonavista, to Vancouver Island, from the Arctic Circle, to the Great Lake waters, this land is made for you and me”.  But I have been there tons of times.  So the trip is over.  I am so glad I did it.  Final thoughts in another post, but here is the final distance tally.  Note that these are distances from Google Maps, not actual distances traveled which would be much more, because I roamed around at each destination.  Each entry is a day of driving – the longest day was Edmonton, AB to Hay River, NT at 1047 km, and the shortest from Lake Louise to Banff, 47 km.  See below for the maps
