Great pics. The Jasper-Banff trip along the parkway is just spectacular. One of my favorites.

Great photos Dr Y. Is this an all year tourist resort or would I freeze to death in winter ? I presume this remains sub zero all year due to its elevation. Does it contain any wildlife ? Is it receding with warmer weather ? We see pictures of areas where glacier ice is disappearing but there are areas we don't see where it's on the increase. I remember being taught about shifting ice regions in the 1950's and all this alarmist talk today seems to be just a continuation of normality.

Hi Garry, if you came in the mid of Canadian winter, the glacier ice field will look no difference to rest of the country . So, walk on the glacier ice under the hot summer sun is much more thrill! Yes, during last visit, we were told that the Columbia Ice Field glacier is receding.
