Columbia Icefield Region
One of the most famous icefields in the world, though certainly not anywhere near the biggest, the Columbia Icefield straddles the Continental Divide between Alberta and British Columbia, as well as the boundary between Banff and Jasper National Parks. Perhaps ironically, most of it is not actually visible from the Icefields Parkway itself, because it is an ice cap located behind most of the mountain slopes visible from the road. The icefield is the source from which many of the famous glaciers of the Canadian Rockies flow. This sceneset includes views of mountains and glaciers in the area, including images from a visit out onto the ice of Athabasca Glacier, some shots from a climb up Parker Ridge, and some images from the more northern reaches of the Icefields Parkway.
