Jasper series 3: Athabasca Falls

 

In the Jasper National Park, Sunwapta Falls  and  Athabasca Falls  are two most famous waterfalls, because  I didn’t have sufficient time to go to the both, so I had to chose  Athabasca Falls by following the advice from my another great friend Barb who has closed his MSN space, but still active on his Flickr. It was really a breathtaking sightseeing spot for any visitors.  its headwater comes from the Columbia Glacier about 70 kilometres south and heads toward north, the water thunders through a narrow gorge,  runs into Athabasca Lake, through Great Slave Lake  and Mackenize River  at the far north and finally spill into Arctic Ocean after a 6200km journey at the north edge of American Continent. As the weather was not cooperative when I was there, so I would like to go back Jasper and visit the both Falls when I have chance.

    You have captured the energy and life of these fall very well.
    I have missed Jasper Park and all it’s wonder for many years now.
