We left Jasper this morning with Kyle (after saying goodbye to Tiffani and Deke, *sniff sniff*) and are heading down to Glacier National Park (the U.S. one) for a couple days before heading back to Portland. Bummer…that meant we had to drive the Icefields Parkway again. It was a bit rainy and cloudy and a totally different drive this time than the drive to Jasper was a few days ago. Totally breathtaking in a whole different way.
Us, Kyle, and the Columbia Icefield, which is a triple Continental Divide. The waters here ultimately flow north to the Arctic Ocean, east to Hudson Bay/Atlantic Ocean, and south and west to the Pacific Ocean. The only other triple Continental Divide in the world is in Siberia. Cool, huh?
Our old friend, the Athabasca Glacier:
Now we're at Lake Louise for one night before heading down to Glacier N.P. We're finishing up a little work and then we'll head over to Moraine Lake to hike around a bit since we missed it when we were here last week. Bonus!
