Crowfoot Glacier, Bow Lake

Crowfoot Glacier, Bow Lake
On 10 August 2013, I went with friend Sandy to Bow Lake, in Banff National Park. It is located along Highway 93, the Icefields Parkway, said to be the most beautiful, scenic highway in the world. She had seen a tiny Liverwort (non-vascular plant) maybe a week earlier on a different trip and wanted to go back to check it at a later stage, and asked if I'd like to go with her. How lucky I am! She had hoped that it might be a particular rare species, but as it turned out, it wasn't. Still an interesting species to add to the list of flora and fauna for the area. Just before turning off into the parking lot for Bow Lake, we had stopped to look over the lake and to view the Crowfoot Glacier, seen in the photo above. It's located 32 km (20 mi) northwest of Lake Louise. After that, we walked very slowly along the Bow Glacier Trail, which runs along the right hand edge of Bow Lake, but didn't continue as far as the Falls. I had only ever once been to Bow Lake and that was 30+ years ago, but I had always longed to go back.

"Named because in the early 1900s it had three “toes” resembling the foot of a crow. In the 1930s, the lower “toe” broke off and has since melted away. Crowfoot Glacier is on the south end of Bow Lake, nestled into Crowfoot Mountain."

This is a magnificent sight, well captured! I'm sure I would have a difficult time figuring out how to photograph a glacier so that I would recognize what it is and be able to have other people recognize it too. You did that very well here!
