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.
