It's hard for one to take in the whole of what the Canadian Rockies has to offer. While the mountain peaks are as high as 11,000 feet, they are, on average, steeper than our own Rocky Mountains. This is just a small portion of the Columbia Ice Field in Jasper NP, showing the Athabasca Glacier. There are trails out to it and some of the small specks on top are people. The ice field includes several more glaciers as you can see here.
Tomorrow, we need to start heading for Detroit, where I will be photographing an engineering conference.
