How often can the average hiker step this close to a glacier?
On Monday, September 12, 2011 my husband and I spent time on the Icefields Parkway. One of the major stops of course is the Icefields Centre where you can view the Athabasca Glacier from a short distance but even better, go across the road and do the short hike up to the toe of the Glacier itself.
These pictures detail some of the hike and the rewards of taking the hour plus to do so!
This was one of the four highlights of my trip to Banff last September!
