On my last day off, me and a few friends did a mini road trip to visit the stunning Athabasca Falls.
The falls. The beautiful mountain right behind it is Mount Kirkesslan:
We hiked around the falls and spent a long time lounging on the rocks by the river. I, of course, spent ages taking pictures. Everything was just so darn beautiful!
Water gushing over the rocks:
The falls runs through a canyon and then spits back into the Athabasca River:
Canyon up close, where the falls empties back into the river:
The river, flowing away from the falls. The Athabasca River starts at the Columbia Icefields, in Jasper, and flows north. The water will eventually deposit into a watershed that goes all the way to the Arctic Ocean!
