We did one hike midday where we rarely came across other people. We kept thinking we were lost and must have gone off trail, but nope.

I haven't been to Banff or Jasper, but desperately want to go. I was considering going in early August next year since that time of the year was perfect for Glacier. I hate being out in nature with hoards of people, but want to go at a time when it's still nice enough to enjoy everything.
Yes, it was the end of August. We were coming back from Jasper and thought we'd stop by for a look but changed our minds once we learned we'd have to find a spot to park in the traffic jam and then take a shuttle. It wasn't worth the aggravation for someplace we'd already seen.
