Jasper NP – Angel Glacier (08/15)

On Mount Edith Cavell until 2012 there were two glaciers, Ghost and Angel. Ghost collapsed during this glacial event. Avalanches and ice fall during the summer shorten the angelic appearance of Angel.

Jan’s Tips:

  • Due to lingering wildfire smoke and recent bear activity, I was unable to explore extended trails, however, access to Angel Glacier is via a short, well-traveled path. There is a nearby rim with a rock scramble providing better views, which is the location of most of these photos.
  • In the Canadian Rockies, grizzly activity closes trails or requires groups of four to travel together. Therefore, it’s always good to go prepared with a Plan B; better yet, also with Plan C and D. Bear and Trail status links.
  • If you’re like me and prefer photos minus strangers, and quiet trails with more opportunity to see wildlife, especially during peak tourist season, GO EARLY.
  • Helpful links:
  • A Parks Canada Pass is required.
  • Link to my other Canada blog posts.
