I got closer to these waterfalls then I normally do and they are impressive. I had not visited Sunwapta Falls before, but they offer an incredible view, sound, and event.
This is a view at the top of the falls looking back upstream.
This is the first chute of water over the top of the falls as it shoots through the narrowing of the channel and over the lip of the valley.
A second view of the top of the falls with a tighter shot on the small cave across the gorge.
And then a last view of the river as it flows down the canyon, crashes into the end wall, takes a sharp left, and disappears from view.
Mount Kerkeslin stands guard over the Icefields Parkway between Sunwapta Falls and Athabasca Falls.
Have a great Monday August 27. 2012.
