If you are visiting Lake Louise, you should plan to have you lunch or atleast a cup of coffee in this place. We always drive to the glacier to spend some time in front of the lake and quiet atmosphere. Just a treat to the eyes.

If you are vacationing in Banff or Lake Louise, take a 30 minute drive North on Hwy 93 to see this wonder. You view it from the roadside and it is such a beauty.

This is a splendid view and has a nice area to pull into. It seems if you have a little more time than we did there... More

I visited this place in July 2013 with my family! This place was just an half an hour stop during our journey to Banff! When we just stepped into this place, we were just stunned by its beauty! It was hard to believe that such a beautiful lake was just a couple of steps away from us! Crystal clear turquoise... More

Unfortunately with global warning I guess, this crow is missing one toe?! or however you want to call it!! So it was not so easy to understand, but can be easily be spotted from the main road. You can take a brief stop, take some pictures and go.

My wife and I visited this glacier during a November drive on the Icefields Parkway, and it was interesting to see this again after a few trips down the Parkway in earlier years. One of the "toes" is missing (and had been on earlier trips also), now that our planet is warming, and it would have been more interesting if... More

This somewhat interesting and mildly scenic glacier was located on the Icefields Parkway about 32 km northwest of Lake Louise. Several small turnouts permitted stops for viewing. Although the glacier was reputedly about 1.5 square kilometers, little of its surface was easily visible from alongside the highway. On the day we stopped to see it, many slow-moving, low-hanging, snow-laden clouds... More

I might not have named this glacier Crowfoot, but even with one missing toe I can easily see the namesake, and it's definitely appropriate.

We stopped for a picture here, one of many on our drive. Great view. If you're driving by, worth a stop to enjoy.

A short visit. This glacier is along the Icefields Parkway, and worth a photo. They say the third toe of the glacier is disappearing so it’s a crowfoot with only two toes.
