This was next to a lake and there was a glacer on the mountain
Tourist at the Columbia Icefields...the glacier has receeded a huge amount but we are lucky to still see it from the road and car park, we could have gone on a trip up the glavier but it took 3 hours, time we didnt have so we went to the Sky Walk instead
800 odd meters above ground level walking on a clear walkway..took me a minute to be able to walk along it and then I had to hang on and not look down! We had a great view of the mountains and saw some mountain goats feeding on impossibly steep looking slopes.
Then we next stopped al Athabasca Falls
Amazing power of the water coming thru the fall
It has ground this channel thru the rocks
And then comes out calmly into this river...apparently bears and elk across here to get to food, none seen today sadly.
Off to Jasper we go.
