Jasper in June (Part 23) – Valley View

The Atahbasca River originates in the Columbia Icefields and flows more than 1,231 km (765 miles) into Lake Athabasca.


Along the way it changes shape and size many times. In this wide valley, it spreads out to appear like a large placid lake. In warm summer weather, when water flow is low and days are warm, it is a favourite place for tourists to wade and appear as if they are walking on water. On this day, we were the only two around and the view was stunning.

    1. It does. We have seen that many times and I took some engagement shots of my son and daughter in law there. At the time of our visit, the water was definitely higher than usual and a wee bit chilly. Thanks for reading. Allan

  1. Wow, looks amazing! Canadian mountains are the most beautiful ones, that’s for sure. With our two week road trip around Ireland, I was behind with reading blog posts. From what it looks like, I’m finally up to date with everything, Allan! Thanks so much for sharing so many amazing pictures from your trip to Jasper. Take care 😊 Aiva
