  Athabasca River roaring over the Falls
by mtncorg

About midway down from the Athabasca River?s birth at the foot of the Columbia Icefield, just off the Icefields Parkway, is Athabasca Falls. The Athabasca is one of two of Alberta?s grand rivers that emanate in the icy wastes of the Columbia Icefield. Glacial milky waters pour over the cliffs in a couple of grand cataracts that are easily seen from trails just off the highway.
