We're planning a driving trip from Colorado, through Montana to Alberta. Our plan is to make a circular route; Calgary, Banff, Jasper, Edmonton, Red Deer. Depending on our spirits we may return via Medicine Hat and the Dakotas.
We tend to favor small, unique restaurants. Our rule of thumb is any outfit with more than one location isn't generally worth our time. We do frequent Tim Hortons but no American chains.
With that in mind can we get some recommendations for chow. Also any places to stay, sites to see etc.
I've been to Lake Louise in the winter for skiing but this will be the first summer trip for both of us.
Thanks in advance for help from our fellow chowhounds.
