After we leave East Glacier NP, we're headed to Banff and Lake Louise and when we leave there we want to see southern part of Idaho. Please advise best route from Kananaskis Alberta CA south. We have a 33' diesel and are towing. Thanks

AL - alabama?. I believe AB is a more common Alberta abbreviation.
How did you come north from East Glacier?
On option going south is hwy 40 south and east to Longview, 22 south to 3 (Crowsnest).
From there you can continue south to Waterton and East Glacier (again), or east to catch the main highway to the border (2?), and take I15 all the way to Idaho.
The only other routes to southern Idaho are US93 via Missoula (a good choice is coming from West Glacier), or US95 down the west side of the state. Incidently, BS 93 and 95 connect with the corresponding US numbers. You can get to those by taking AB3 west into BC.
Since you mention Idaho Falls, I assume you mean you are interested in the SE corner of Idaho. I'm more familiar with the Idaho mountains north of I84 - the Salmon, Challis, Stanley, Loweman loop.
Another thought -
go north through Kananaskis - i.e. East Glacier, Waterton, AB3, AB22 AB40.
Then though Canmore, Banff and Lake Louise. Exit the area through Yoho to Golden (or Kootenay NP to Radium). Pickup BC93 south, and stay on US93 to Idaho (or US95).
