Tuesday we traveled the IceFields Parkway from Jasper to Lake Louise. The highway is aptly named as there are glaciers and snow-capped peaks at every turn. The highlight of the drive was Sunwapta Falls, another very powerful and deep fall of the Athabasca River into a deep gorge. Awesome is going to be an overused word in this blog but it really is! The fence allowed us to get right down close to the churning water, mist, and spray.
We started the day in low clouds which felt very mysterious.
We didn’t take the snowcoach tour on the Columbia Icefield as we have done that before, but stopped for a few photos.
