ATHABASCA FALLS

We passed up Sumwapta Falls but I talked Sean into stopping for the Athabasca Falls. I’m glad I did. I really liked it. It was completely touristy. There were ramps and stairs for easy, casual walking. Plus the falls were really beautiful with great views. The headwater comes from the Columbia Glacier about 70 kilometers south. The water rushes through a narrow gorge to be one of the more powerful falls in the Rocky Mountains.
